Hortiscope: Roundup won't kill tree roots growing in sewer lines

Email

Q: In 2009, I planted some apple trees. I was told to paint the trunks so they wouldn't burn in the sun. I painted them with an oil-based enamel paint. Now I heard that I should have used a water- based paint. Have I killed my trees?

A: I don't think so, but the next few weeks will tell. Keep your fingers crossed.
