I have this, what I call, "weed" tree that I'm trying to kill that was about 20-25' tall...before I cut off the branches!
Now, I'm left with about six (6) sawed off branches about 6' tall. I want to kill this tree only so maybe in a year or so, the roots have loosed enough that I can either dig it out or use a cable come-along to pull the branches out by the roots.
On one side of the tree, about 6' away, is a palm tree and on the other side, about 6' away, is a pine tree. I want to kill this tree only without harming the health of the other two trees.
I'm thinking of making fresh cuts on the remaining 6 branches and then immediately painting some sort of herbicide, etc., on the cuts so the tree sucks the chemical back to its roots and kills it?
Suggestions on how best to kill this pesky tree?
