Kill A Tree but Don’t Leave Any Evidence!
Before we start, it must be clear to everyone that killing a tree is not a small matter! It takes a long time for a tree to grow to its full size, and killing it should be the last resort. There has to be a good reason why you plan to take this step. On top of it, if you have to do it sneakily, then there have to be some really good reasons!
I can share a lot of information on this because I have done extensive research on this topic! We had a big tree in our garden, very close to the kitchen. It not only blocked sunlight but also had deep roots that were dangerous to the structure of our house. Its dry branches were a hazard and would break and fall suddenly. I decided to get rid of the tree, but thanks to my wife and neighbors, who were all tree huggers and just wouldn’t let me do it!
That was when I started to look up different methods to do it without anyone knowing about it. If you are facing a similar problem, then I suggest that you first gather as much information as you can. Read on to find how you kill a tree and not let anyone know about it.
List of Things You Need
You probably realize that there are more than a couple of methods. Sometimes you may have to use a combination of two to get the best results. Here is a list of some of the things that you will need for different methods.
What Can You Do?
You have to get rid of a tree and that too in such a manner that nobody comes to know about it!! The question is, ‘Why?’ Well, there can be many reasons for this.
Now, to kill a tree and that too, in a secret manner, is a tall order and not very easy to achieve! A tree is not a small something that you can destroy without letting anyone know about it. I had to try several things and thankfully my brother, who had a farm nearby, let me experiment! He wanted to remove some, and I convinced him to let me do it.
I tried a few methods and also improvised and tried to find new innovative ways to kill a tree without letting anyone know. Here are a few of these methods that you can also try. See what works for you and understand what your needs are.
Best Ways to Hide Your Moves
Killing a tree is not very difficult, but the fact that you have to do it without letting anyone know makes it very difficult. Here are a few things that you can try to keep your intentions undetected. You may find some of the ideas strange or even funny, but believe me; you need some strategy to kill a tree in secret!
Pretend that you are using the tree as a target and use poison-tipped or copper arrows and darts. You can do this in broad daylight without letting anyone know about your true intentions.
Cowboy & Red Indians
You can play cowboys and Indians and leave the copper arrows embedded.
It is always better to use herbicide, tree killers, etc. at night under cover of darkness and then cover it as much as you can with soil.
When the neighbors are not around
This is the best option when you have inquisitive neighbors. When you know they are out for a vacation, then plan your move.
Don’t Talk About It
It is best not to talk about your intentions, even with friends and family. You never know who is a tree hugger or a tree lover!
If you are planning to kill a tree without letting anyone know, then you need to have a lot of patience! Most of your moves will require a lot of time and will yield results only after a long time.
Remember that killing a tree requires a lot of effort, especially if it is a large one! On top of that, if you want to do it in a hush-hush manner, then it becomes even more complicated.
I wanted to kill a tree in a quiet manner because of specific reasons. If you find yourself in a similar predicament, then you will find all the information very useful. I was able to try different methods on different trees on my brother’s farm, but you will not get too many chances! When you decide to get rid of a tree, it is after a lot of deliberation and weighing all the pros and cons. So, if you find any obstacles in your way, you need to find ways to achieve your aim!
Pesky neighbors, soft-hearted family members, or some vague laws can all turn you into a plotter of the best kind! If you find the information useful, do let us know.
