    If you decide you do want rid of it a good method is to stump it and then apply epsom salt to holes drilled through into it.
    See the attached video tutorial.

    When I hear people mention potent carcinogens like glyphosate it always makes me shudder as it is absolutely horrible stuff.

    I have a large eucalyptus with its main trunk about 10m from my conservatory. If it came Tree.jpg down it would wipe it
    out. I have the tree checked every couple of years and to cut off all the dead wood up in the canopy. The tree surgeon has no issues with it so my only beef is the tree routinely shedding its bark onto my lawn and borders. :(

    That's only a fraction of the roots, really just the bottom of the trunk
