Yes and anything else that tries to grow in that spot for a long time.
There are lots better and cheaper ways than diesel. You would have to soak a couple of gallons on each pear plant to do any good.

Google "Brush Busters". Good control, lot less diesel and much cheaper.

eeks333 Every pulled some out of livestock mouths? You can burn the thorns off but way to much work. Don't have any and don't want any. Remedy with diesel works pretty good.
