I have cut down a Camellia that:
a) wasn't flowering
b) was situated beside the front wall of my house
c) was about 8 feet tall.

i) If I kill it off will the roots rotting away affect the foundations?
ii) If that is OK, how do I kill it off?

Thanks.

Your foundation should be fine. Once the plant is dead the roots will eventually rot away.
