Banana died within a week. At first it yellowed, than browned and then went black.

This (as I later found out) also works with some invasive trees, such as Sambucus for my zone.

But beware, such damage could be described as crime on someone else's property. If that someone can prove it. And I'm not talking about the moral point of view...

I've been cutting and eliminating trees all over my yard for about 2 years now and had to "remove" several trees from my neighbour's yard, because he refused to trim them. Luckily for me, he doesn't go to that part of garden very often, but then, there's no way of saving any plant after spraying. Maybe only if it rained immediately after you go along spraying things.
Maybe it's the Zone 9-10 issue here.
