killing trees without herbicides
« on: December 08, 2017, 03:10:08 PM »


Will girdling like this kill the tree?
this is a Aspen/Popular.



This didn't kill the tree.

any better ways to kill the tree while leaving it standing?
Does time of year this is done matter?

Your first pictured method will definitely kill the standing portion of the tree, but because it is aspen the roots will still be viable and can put up shoots. The second pictured method will kill the standing portion of the tree IF  the cambium layer has been completely severed for the full circumference of the stem.  Even if a very thin strip of cambium didn't get completely severed, the tree can survive.
