How to Kill a Tree

Whether a tree is invasive, is ruining a scene, or you just want to plant something else in the space, there are many reasons that you may want to remove a tree on your property. Often, removing the tree professionally can prove to be very expensive. However, there are several ways you can kill the nuisance tree so that you can remove yourself after the tree dies.

Girdling the Tree

Remove any loose bark. Girdling is a method to kill a tree by obstructing the flow of sap between the roots and crown of the tree. You can tie a tree with or without the use of herbivores to accelerate this process. Girdling is the easiest and most popular way to kill trees without chemicals or herbs, but the tree will take several months to die from this process. Start by dragging any loose bark that gives you easy access to the trunk. You should clean the bark in about 4-5 inch (10-13 cm) wide bar.

The height at which you cut the tree is flexible, so choose a level on which you are comfortable to work around the trunk and cut down.

Put on the safety gear. When you make a cut, you have a variety of options. You can use a chainsaw, an ax, a cap, or even a wooden chisel for very thin-barked trees. Use proper safety precautions for the cutting tools you use, including protective equipment.

Make a cut around the circumference of the tree. Depth of the cut you make depends on the thickness of the tree. For very thin trees, you can cut the wood around 1 thin2 inch (1.3 cm) while large, strong trees require a depth of 1-1 1/2 inch (2.53.8 cm). Try to level the band as much as possible to move around the tree as much as possible.

Put another cut around the circumference of the tree. To effectively surround the tree, you will need a second band. The distance between the two bands must be around 2-4 inches (5.1-10.2 cm). Make the second cut as deep as the first cut.

If you are using an ax or a handcuff, where precision horizontal cuts are more difficult, you can cut a groove in the tree instead. To make the groove, cut down the angles at the bottom, then cut the one-cut angle to the top, where both cuts meet in the middle. For small trees, this groove can be around 2 inches (5.1 cm) wide around the perimeter, while the drain on the big trees should be approximately 6-8 inches (15-20 cm) wide. Make the groove to the same depth as you attach it to two bands.

Apply Shakanaashi. If you choose to use herbicide, you want to apply it to them within five or ten minutes of cutting down the trees, before they start drying and hardening. Adding herbicide to gerding can kill the tree in six weeks, while avoiding chemical use can take several months.

Generally available, effective herbsides include glyphosate (roundup or kilpal) and trichopoir (gerlon or brush bei gon).

Mix the saffron properly according to the instructions of your specific brand and apply it on a cut with a spray bottle.

You must definitely blend the herbicide over time so that it can be applied to the earliest garmenting.

Before using the mixture or herbicide, read the label completely.

While working with any herb, wear eye protection, long sleeves and pants, gloves and leg foot shoes.

Stop. Now that you have obstructed the flow of sap in the tree and possibly presents the herbicide in the root system, you just have to wait for the tree to die.

Using the Hack and Squirt Method

Get an ax or a handcuff. If you plan to use Shakanashi on the tree, then the hack and squirt method can be as effective as the girdle method with less work involved. The hack and the squirt method uses exact chops around the whole tree to coat with herbicide instead of an entire band. Start by receiving an ax or a handcuff.

Mix herbicide in a spray bottle. Hacks and squirt methods require less deduction than gearing up, but you will still use the same herb. Find out how much to make by reading the complete label on herbicide. Mix the herbicide in a spray bottle before cutting.

Generally available, effective herbsides include glyphosate (roundup or kilpal) and trichopoir (gerlon or brush bei gon).

Before working with any herb, wear safety clothes such as safety glasses, long sleeves and gloves.

Cut down in the tree stem. Using an ax or hatchet, cut downwards in the tree trunk of approximately 2 inches (5.1 cm) long. The cut should be deep enough to move into a lightly sapwood, so that you can effectively introduce herbicide.

Spray the herbicide in the cut. Once you make a cut, then pull the ax or the head of the hat completely instead of taking it out on the edge of the cut. Then use the spray bottle to spray the herbicide under the top portion of the hechit, so that it goes down in the dark sapwood part of the cut.

Ensure that you spray the herbicide just before the soft wood in harvesting, there is an opportunity to dry and harden.

Your specific brand of herbicide will give you instructions on how much spraying of herbicide in each cut.

If you want to treat many trees, different specially designed injectors are also available for this purpose.

Repeat the cut down as directed. Based on the perimeter of the tree near your specific brand of herbicide, there will be guidelines for how much cuts you need to make. Most trees will require an additional deduction of 1-3 inch (2.57.6 cm) from the edge to the edge.

Keep adding herbicide to each cut. For every cut in the trunk that suggests your brand’s herbicide, you want to add the same amount of herbicide. Spray the herbicide in the cutting by using the injector or the ax or flat side, until you get one.

Removing the Tree and Treating the Stump

Take all reasonable safety precautions. In contrast to the other methods required to leave the tree stand, this method involves cutting trees, through which to see the trees or for any reason where you want the tree, become the best method to go there immediately. She goes. Since you will have to cut the tree, so start taking every precaution with the operation of checks and keep the area where the tree will be safe.

Mix curry. With the methods of other herbs, you have to coat it with glyphosate or trichopoir as soon as the tree is cut off. Before mixing a spray bottle before cutting the tree, read the label of Herbicide.

Before working with herbicide, wear safety glasses, gloves and long sleeves.

Cut the tree. For small trees, the drop zone of the tree is very shallow and easy to work with, but if you are working with a large tree, you will need to be more careful in cutting it. For a complete explanation of how to safely cut the tree, see How to Fail A Tree.

For larger trees, consider hiring a professional to cut trees for yourself.

Apply a coating of herbicide over the top of the remaining trunk. Many people do not realize that cutting trees alone does not kill root system. Often, the root system will send new sprouts instead By applying a coating of herbicide for the sapwood highlighted in the trunk, you can treat the root system and keep it as well.

For small trees, you can just coat the entire cross section of the trunk. For large trees, the hard mid part of the tree will not absorb any herbicide, so you can just coat a band of herbivores around the outer ring where you can still see light colored sapwood.
