What's the diameter of your Amelanchier trunks?  I try not to get spray on 
any trunks (trees & shrubs, any kind) thinner than 1" and I'm careful near 
larger diameter, especially if thin bark.

One of the things that brings smiles to me is my use of Roundup last fall.
My amelanchiers were so full of thistles last year I hard to remove at least 
a ton of material to make room for picking.
Last fall I sprayed the rows with roundup after the leaves had fallen from 
the berry plants.  Virtually nothing is growing that is of the broadleaf 
weed or grass weed nature under the berries.  I have done this in previous 
years but have failed to make a point of doing it for last few years.
Yea Roundup.
