unwanted willow tree
When I moved into my current home I inhereted a young willow tree which I nurtured through its first year. 7 years on it has grown into a magnificent thug! It is too big and shades out too much of the garden. I would much rather have something wildlife-friendly such as a crab apple in its place. Does anyone know how I can get rid of it organically? I don't mind leaving a stump but don't want it to re-grow and I don't use any harmful chemicals in my garden. I tried giving it a severe haircut but really it has to go!
