Autumn Olive Control (IL)

From: Sharon Chancey
Pomona, IL
We have 23 acres near Shawnee National Forest and part of our property is covered with autumn olive which we would like to rid our property of.

Since we have a lot of hardwoods we don't want to damage can you please instruct us how to get rid of these bushes doing as little damage as possible to wild life.

Thank you.
