    home insurance is now 30% more if you have trees within 15m of your property.big no no when buying a house.trees in garden it's a no thanks.
    cause too much mess and can cause a lot of damage once the roots get under your house.

    You could try to suffocate it. Really!

    I remember reading in some BS about preserving trees on a building site. It warned against piling earth up over the area its roots go because that would suffocate it.

    Does it have to be unicorn blood ?? I remember one old boy telling me that a bucket of fresh blood from the slaughterhouse would kill a tree and not leave a long-lived tell-tale smell like diesel or creosote. I have never tried it.

    Drill into trunk of tree at 45 degrees and pour diesel add paraffin as it helps thin the derv gets right down to the root. And when it is dead and get it chopped down getting stump out is easy get coal paraffin and more derv and set light, woosh ;)

    Keep adding and you will be left with a big hole where it once stood. ;)
     
  12. I always use 'Stump Killer'
    Works within weeks, but best time is Autumn when the sap is returning to the roots!!

    An old landscape gardener told me you can drill some holes and pour milk into them, the bacteria supposedly kills the tree over time, alot cheaper than diesel too. Never tried it though so could be a loud of rubbish!
