Here’s what is in Crossbow
(triclopyr ester + 2,4-D ester).
Crossbow is a prepackaged mixture of two herbicides used as a foliar spray to
control brush at full leafout from the spring through September. Crossbow plus
diesel fuel is useful as a stump spray and a basal bark treatment. For best
results from the basal bark treatment, apply to brush stems less than 6 inches
in diameter during winter or early spring. For better control of regrowth from
larger trees, cut larger trees and treat the stumps. Crossbow is a good general
brush control product which controls or suppresses the growth of some oaks,
locust, willow, blackberries, and mulberry. It provides poor foliar control of
sassafras and persimmon.
I’d be very reluctant to use anything containing 2,4-D as
neurological researchers I used to work with think it is implicated in long
term neurological damage

by memory only...Crossbow is for woody weeds or brush and broadleafs, I think
it doesn't harm grasses but am not sure. We have done a lot research on
chemical control of weeds so a lot of these brand names are running together in

In addition to the 2-4 D Crossbow has
another chemical in it but I can't remember what it
I am not familiar with Crossbow. Does it Not kill grass,
only the weeds, like 24D did. We always used 24D inour roadside ditch area
in Nebraska & people would ask how we got our ditch to look so good.
