Copper sulphate can be quite effective.
I have also drilled a hole with a speed bore and battery drill
down at dirt level sized for a piece of plumber's copper pipe.
Drive it in. Tree will not make the year.
I have also read that girdling the tree with a piece of copper
wire is effective.
Keep the whole world singing. . . .
Rather slow. You can spray it with weed killer, but the effect varies
with the type of tree. Most effective is to girdle it. Cut a 1 inch
section around the base of the tree, deep enough to go past the bark.
Water still travels up the center, but that leaves a gap so that
nutrients can get back to the roots. Takes a year or two till the
tree is dead.
I am rather concerned that you are interested in methods other than the
obvious - use a chain saw. This leads me to suspect that it isn't your
tree. If you have a beef with your neighbor then work it out like adults -
don't resort to urban terrorism.
Find the root drill a hole in it then fill it with muratic acid. But the
EPA can take soil samples.
or cut the circumference of the tree through all the bark. It will die
I cut my neighbors tree down and they had the SWAT team on me. They were
dressed like terrorists.
Death to the christian jew cop government.
