We have a hedge which is full of Elder and as we are both in our 70,s I wonder if anyone can advise how to kill it,Roots and all Jean



Cut down to a short stump. drill holes in top of stump and apply a stump killer available at DIY sheds. Cover stump with plastic bag to keep water/animals off.

As you're in your 70's you may need to get help with this.
