Pine tree removal.

I have a 70' pine tree that I want to remove. It's no problem getting a tree man in there to take it down. My problem is my wife wants it to stay up. That is fine except I am tired of raking up those pine needles that fall from that tree. Can someone give me a good idea how to kill that tree so it just looks like it died on its own? I know it's sneaky but I am tired of those needles. Thanks.

Rich

Get the concentrate herbicide RoundUp or any other glyphosate. Drill a few holes into the trunk angling down and immediately after drilling the hole fill it with the herbicide concentrate.

"Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned". Old saying, not to upset things that may get you deeper in trouble. It is a loose translation of William Congreve in a play he wrote called "The Mourning Bride" in 1697
