I have a Poplar tree at the bottom of the garden that has 40ft (roughly) Ivy vines growing up it. We decided to kill it as it's blocking out a lot of light and is obviously too big to trim.
I took an axe to it last summer and severed as many trunks I could see at the bottom, but it's still as green and lush as ever and growing berries.
How long will it take to give up roughly? Is there anything else I can do?
