    Default how to kill a tree

    any one know of any liquid or paste to apply on a tree branch that will kill a tree ? getting to the trunk is not an option or i would simply chop it down, for all the enviromentalists out there it is not a mature oak or any thing like that , its a sort of weed type tree that stands about 9 feet tall

    you could try resolva 24h, but get the concentrate that you dilute, then mix it up really strong or use it neat to see if that works
    might also be worth popping in to your local garden centre and having a chat with them, they normally have some good ideas or recommend you a suitable chemical

    Hi The Gas Man

    Just drill a hole in the trunk or branch and pour in some Glyphosate (sp?)
    and seal the hole with a bit of mud and the neighbours will never know

    Try "Jeyes fluid" many years ago it was used "diluted" for sterilizing soil & weed killing.

    A colleague of mine is right into the whole horticulture thing & he swears by the stuff

    Just bang a few copper nails into it, or pour some copper sulphate on it. That will definately kill it.

    Copper nails take a while, but they will work. As an architect my old boss put a strip of copper across the ridge of his house to stop moss growing on his roof tiles.

    im a gardener with a chemical spraying ticket. to kill a tree use TORDON but be carefull as it could kill alot of the surrounding plant life. diesel is another good tree killer.
