Hi Bob:

The active ingredient Triclopyr is effective in controlling Osage-orange, or hedge.

Garlon 3A (amine; mixed w/ water) and Garlon 4 (ester; mixed with diesel or basal oil) are two commonly sold herbicides with the active ingredient Triclopyr, and they are widely available at most farm stores.
