I have a customer that want to know if there is a chemical that he can pour on his pine trees to kill them. I asked why he doesn't just have them cut down, but that is the way he wants it done. I guess he is going to burn them. He is kind of strange! They are pine trees with 6-7" diameter trunks. Any ideas?

Girdle them.

Cut into the trunk 2" all the way around the tree about a foot off the ground with a chainsaw.

Starves the tree to death.:(

But don't expect an arborist to climb the tree afterwards.

i was just gonna say the same thing that treeslayer said, i`ve seen it done and it seems to work good. may be u could drill a few 1/2 holes in them and pour a little bit of straight round up in them :D :dizzy: it also depends were u buy ur round up.

Put out a few Pine bark beatles. That will do the trick.
