Cheshire, United Kingdom
My 94 year old uncle has/had a 6ft tall conifer just inside his boundary wall. It's roots were lifting part of the concrete drive making a tripping hazard. He broke up the concrete and got the root out by himself and we re-concreted the 4 ft x 3 ft area.
Now, he's cut the whole tree down and is trying to get the rest of the roots out. Question is - is there a chemical of some kind that will eventually kill off this root without him going any further ?
And before someone has a go at me - I live a long way from him and I'm no Spring chicken myself !
