    no jac it wont kill them take what you want off the top and just trim all the sides so they wont go brown good luck hope you have a high ladder.

  • nothing kills conifers in my experience!lop as much as you can off the top first then the sides.but make sure you put long sleeves on,i did mine a few years ago and had an itchy rash!nice smell tho.
