      use epsom salt and then add some water, also sprinkle it around the base. The article below goes into more detail.

      You need one of these...

      "Do what thou will shall be the whole of the law" - Aleister Crowley

      "If you love me, obey my commandments" - Jesus Christ

      The Bible comes as a complete package. If we want to pluck verses out of context so make them mean what we want them to mean, if we want to ignore the passages that are inconvenient to our outlook, we should be intellectually honest enough to throw our Bibles in the trash and admit we are following Crowley and not Christ.

      The copper sulphate can be poured into holes bored into the top of the tree stump immediately. We had a smaller tree removed a few years back and the tree surgeon applied the copper sulphate immediately to kill the root. The stump is still in the ground though because it is adjacent to a public footpath and removal may damage the path.

      If your oak was 25 feet tall the trunk was probably 24 inches diameter or so? That is going to take some shifting, have you considered explosives?

      My husband looked at videos and saw the epsom salt one online and emailed it to me not knowing I had asked here on the site for advice So maybe that's the one he feels the most comfortable having me do. I like the idea of digging around the roots more too to expose them and chop away at them first before we add the epsom salt!

      Thank you for all the advice.
