    Question....

    Our privacy fence is being overgrown from the other side by those worthless grease trees (locals name for the..??) that over grow the fence lines. The trees are pushing my fence in. I want to kill them. Naturally. The tenants are pretty useless (go figure) so I am down to this.

    Do any of you know of an off the shelf product or a personal concoction that you know will work. I have to do something before the fence is ruined.

    These are trees on someone else's property?

    If so, I'd get it in writing that they've given you permission to kill them.

    Tree law isn't something to be taken lightly... read lots of stories with tens of thousands of dollars in penalties.
    Let that be my contrarian reply...

    If you run the property line they are actually on my property. When the previous owner set up the fence he allowed for the utility easement. I have looked into this and yes that is my yard for a foot and a half the other side of the fence. You can see where the fence line jogs in the next yard over. So push come to shove I am good to go.

    ...thereby creating a paper trail that you want the trees dead.

    Sometimes trees just die....for various reasons....

    I've personally used a solid mix of diesel with a heavy amount of round up concentrate to kill stuff off but I'm not sure what it'd even do to tress as large as it sounds these are. Buddy of mine has something he'd mix up and spray on the base of the tree and put it on the ground next to thorny locus trees he wanted dead on his property. However, I'm not sure what it'd do to any grass around them. I'll ask him what it is though.
