removing mature trees

Angela O\’Donovan asked 13 years ago

I have two mature grey sally (willow) trees growing on the boundary of my rural garden. These shed lots of seeds during the late spring, which means lots of seedlings all over my flowerbeds. I also have an ash tree which is threatening to stifle a neighbouring beech tree. I plan to have these cut down and paint the stumps with SBK Brushkiller. Is this a sutiable time of year or should I wait until Spring?

Both ash and sally will re-sprout when cut down if not treated. You can cut them at any time and drill the stumps with about 10mm drill bit, one drill hole every 10 cms of tree circumference, and place in each hole 5 mls undiluted Roundup.
