I cleared some woods to make room for more fruit and nut trees, but am now overrun with wild raspberries and sticker bushes. First removal attempt was to burn all of the land. That just seemed to fertilize everything. Tried some spraying but that had no effect. These things took over in one year and now own the land. I’m out of ideas and worried they are going to spread more. Any advice?
The raspberries are fair to good tasting, but they have jumbo seeds and I’m worried they will infect my improved raspberries. Almost forgot. Today saw some wild blackberries too. Too bad they are not worth anything.
