Good post! We also have some "fig savannah" on rangeland in western Yolo County.  
We haven't done trials on fig control, but we've found with some other deciduous tree species that fall treatments work best. At this time of year, the trees are sending a lot of carbohydrates down to the root system, which is where you want the herbicide to go.

Thanks, Guy! I appreciate the insight - sounds like we can maximize the efficacy of treatment if we take advantage of the cycle of sap flow.
