Poisoning the roots would be an effective way to kill the tree, but would cause the tree to fall at an unpredictable time, which could be a safety hazard. Perhaps you could hire a neighbor to cut it down for a low cost? Some municipalities will cut down trees for free if they are a safety hazard, perhaps you could look into this.
