"Bullet-Proof"
"I was looking for a tool to pull medium-sized Buckthorn (chest high) where hand pulling was impossible. The area around my 80 acre woods was full of Buckthorn and the Root Talon is definitely a heavy-duty tool, but not too hard to carry into the woods. The tool provides great leverage and has been bullet-proof. The handle even has a lifetime guarantee. The Root Talon does a GREAT job WITHOUT chemicals!!!"

What Gardeners Are Talking About: Buckthorn
Buckthorn Control




Common buckthorn is a shrub or small tree that can grow to 22 feet in height and have a trunk up to 10 inches wide. Exotic buckthorns tend to form dense, even-aged thickets, crowding and shading out native shrubs and herbs, often completely obliterating them. Dense buckthorn seedlings prevent native tree and shrub regeneration.


The Root Talon’s gripping talon hook wraps around the sapling or plant. The two forks hold the plant while you apply pressure to the long handle, leveraging it out of the ground. This removes the plant with the root. No chemicals or poisions.
