How do I rid myself of this tree ???
Hampshire, United Kingdom
Help I am being invaded ... I have been told this tree is a 'Schumaker'. It has large fern life leaves and produces large red candle shaped clusters, hairy branches with sticky sap ... is it ringing any bells yet ?
This said beast has been in the garden for longer than I have lived here (15 years) - we have cut it right down and tried numerous products in trying to rid ourselves of it. The last being 'Growing Success Deep Root Ultra Tree Stump & Weedkiller' - alas to no avail. Its roots are now half way up the garden (some 8 feet) with lots of fresh reddish shoots spurting up on a daily basis.
Please help me rid myself of the 'triffid' before it is encroaching indoors?!?!?!?!
All ideas welcome.
