Generally, Weed Wrench will uproot any plant if the jaws will fit around the stem, and the tensile strength of the stem exceeds the anchoring strength of the roots.
It will work on virtually all woody plants. Jaw placement is easiest on straight, vertical stems and becomes trickier (but not impossible) on multi-stemmed plants or plants that lay flat against the ground.
It will work on some herbaceous plants if the stem is fibrous and tough enough so the roots pull out before the stem is crushed to the breaking point.
It will work on previously cut off plants when a stub of the original stem is accessible. It will pull wooden tree stakes for re-use. It will not work on soft-stemmed plants. It will not work on plants which grow in a clump like pampas grass.
Following are just some of the plants Weed Wrench has proven effective against:
Weed Wrench is best used on shrubs and trees where uprooting is a positive end to that plant. It can also be helpful for a first-round root removal of plants like blackberry vine or poison oak. With such plants, keep in mind that it will take follow-up work to control underground root fragments that send up new growth.
