Garlon XRT uses the toxic active ingredient triclopyr it's manufacturer is DOW.

Triclopyr is a selective herbicide used to control woody plants (e.g. blackberries) and broad-leafed weeds. Triclopyr has a similar structure and acts in a similar way to 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T.

Environmental effects:
Triclopyr is toxic to fish, but breaks down rapidly in water. It persists much longer in soil. Animals should be excluded from treated areas for at least 17 days.
