Hello. In our garden we have a massive laurel bush which is now more like a tree. I would like to cut it back to a sensible height but I don't know how best to discard the waste branches. We have a natural area where we normally dump all our garden waste but I have been told that they will root and shoot again, creating multiple laurel bushes, which we don't want. Also, I have been advised that you can't burn the waste as the fumes given off are toxic. Can you please tell me if the advice I have been given is correct, and if so, how you would recommend that we get rid of a very large quantity of the waste?
Thanks very much
