Cheers everyone!  I had a feeling only hard work and willpower would be the way to go.  Ah well, that's this weekend's workout sorted

unwanted willow tree

When I moved into my current home I inhereted a young willow tree which I nurtured through its first year.  7 years on it has grown into a magnificent thug!  It is too big and shades out too much of the garden.  I would much rather have something wildlife-friendly such as a crab apple in its place.  Does anyone know how I can get rid of it organically?  I don't mind leaving a stump but don't want it to re-grow and I don't use any harmful chemicals in my garden.  I tried giving it a severe haircut but really it has to go!

Gardening For Wildlife

Hi Mark, I should've got back to you earlier.  I'm really into wildlife gardening and re-doing my garden same as you.  I've been researching what to get and have lots of ideas.  I also have that book!  I live nearby - would it be useful to swap contact details and ideas?
