The Q&A Archives: How to kill a tree

Question: Tree dropping hundreds of dried leaves every day. If tree dies, HOA will remove at no cost to me. How can I cause the tree to die?

Answer: If it is dropping tons of leaves, it sounds like it's already in decline! Withholding water is about the only eco-friendly way to hasten its demise. Or, maybe it can be saved. If you can figure out what kind of tree it is and whether or not there are symptoms of insect or disease problems, you might be able to correct the problem and the tree can regain its health and not drop hundreds of dried leaves everyday?
