I needed to chop down and kill over 15 trees at one of my rental properties. Here are some of the best ways for how to kill a tree. Here is a great resource for how to kill a tree.
How To Kill A Tree Fast
- First, mix round up concentrate with water in a spray bottle. Mix half Roundup, half water.
- Cut your tree down. I just bought the Rancher 460 and I love it. Check out my Rancher 460 Review video. Make sure you wear safety goggles and gloves. I tried to be cool and not wear safety glasses at first but I couldn’t really see with all the wood chips flying in my face.This tree is growing right up through my fence so I am cutting off both trunks.
- You can see there is a darker inner ring and a lighter outer ring. Drill holes in the lighter outer ring. That is where the tree is living and transfers all its liquids. I am using a 3/8’s inch drill bit. Drill holes all around the stump.
- Now fill the holes with roundup. This should kill the tree pretty fast. Once your tree is dead you can remove the stump by burning it digging out the roots. Learn more about how to remove a tree stump.
