I have a tree growing out of my children's swing set. It is a new tree this year. How can I dispose of it without using Round Up?
You know, if it's not too big, just dig it up. Make sure to get as much of the roots as you can. (05/20/2007)
I would saw or lop it down to ground level and drill a hole in the center of the trunk and put salt or stump remover in the center. Get stump remover at Lowe's or Home Depot. (05/22/2007)
Try using boiling water mixed with vinegar and pour it on it. It kills weeds and may kill the tree. (05/25/2007)
If you don't have garden tools for heavier cutting, try using a wood-saw, as low to the ground as possible. Also, remember that nothing can grow without leaves. Have the children keep pulling the leaves off it, every time they're there, until you can get it cut down. Then, if any sprouts return, pull them off at their connection to the main trunk/base of the tree. It's likely a nut tree planted by a squirrel or dropped by a bird flying overhead. God bless and help you. (05/28/2007)
