shortening tall yew trees to 1.5m

Removing the stumps and roots of a yucca tree

I have removed a rather large and overgrown yucca tree which was planted in front of my bay window by the previous owner, leaving two stumps approx. 20-25cm in diameter. New shoots have already started to grow and I am concerned about re-growth. Am I better off inserting poison into the stumps or should I attempt to remove the roots? If removal is better, how best to approach this? Many thanks

How high legally can pine trees be, right at the side of your house?

I live in a council house and my neighbours have 4 pine trees of which the closest is right beside the house. Don't know the height but it is as tall as the house roof. It blocks my sunlight into my kitchen which is on that side, blocks the sunlight into my daughter and sons room but also blocks the sunlight into my garden. As you can imagine the house is dull and grim. The summer time you get creepy crawlies coming in through opened windows and its gross.
What can I do? The neighbours when I have mentioned it to them have said they will trim them but personally they need a good cutting and are 2 close to the house.
Id appreciate any feedback.

Would a metal band Around a tree make the tree suffocate ?

Hi,
I recently had a tree surgeon visit my property and he suggested that the metal band to hold my fence in place (that was put in place over 2.5 years ago) will cause my tree to die.
However , it’s been ok for the past 2.5 years and I would like to know if I should take immediate action ? The metal band isn’t wrapped around it completely though.
I’ve been saving up to replace my fence and I don’t want to kill my tree in the mean time.

How to permanently get rid of Bamboo

Looking to get rid of the Bamboos, and need someone to dig deep and take out the roots and than apply some poison to stop future growth. I know Bamboos are evasive but if we take out the main roots and put poison would it stop growing? Is there any good products to get rid of Bamboo? Many Thanks

REMOVE TWO TALL TREES PLUS ROOTS

How easy is it to remove tree roots. I am purchasing a property which has two tall trees in the garden, one on the front lawn quite near to the house (I think it is a large cherry tree) and one at the back of the house (looks like a silver birch) both of which have become overgrown. I am worried that the roots may be getting into the drains.
