How do I kill a large tree??
It might sound like a strange question, but 1st let me tell you what type of tree it is. It's a tree that kills other trees, the BLACK WALNUT.
I don't want to cut the tree down because I'm afraid the stump and roots will just start to grow again if I don't remove it right away. Plus, I figure removing a stump with dead roots will be much easier then trying to remove a stump from a freshly cut tree. Another added bennie is that my neighbors are pretty protective of large trees; even though it's in my yard. If it's already dead, they'd be happy to see me take it down and replant.
So what's the best way to kill this thing over the winter??
