Have to get rid of a Cotoneaster TREE...
A neglected cotoneaster has grown to nearly 20 feet, and the trunk (about 8 inches in diameter) is just a few inches from the house.
I am worry that the roots will damage the house foundation and the water/sewage pipes running in/out of the house, and might even cause subsidence as well.
We plan to get rid of it and plan something more suitable. I am thinking of spraying Roundup on it. Will it be effective on cotoneaster that big? And can I apply it anytime rather than waiting for spring/summer? I did notice that it is still growing even in winter!
