How to kill a large tree secretly?
Hi, i realise this might not be a super popular topic on here, but i need a tree to be removed secretly if possible as it drops large amounts of leaves into my dad's gutters and he has had a stroke recently which has resulted in him losing his some of his balance which means it not safe for him to clean the gutters every day. Since i work in the city itÃ¯Â¿Â½s meant i can only clean them every second week for him.
I spoke to the next door neighbour told him about the situation and offered $5k + expenses to remove the tree he decided he wanted $15k which i think is just him trying to rip me off, so i'm wondering if there is a way to kill it secretly?
I have access to a root about 4inch/10 cm in diameter on my dad's property, but not the trunk of the tree or the leaves. I've read on the internet that drilling holes in the root and filling them with either round up, salt or copper sulphate may work, but i'm wondering if it really would to be effective against a large tree like this, it is ~ 10m tall.
Thanks for any help.
