Q.How Can I Destroy Outdoor Maidenhair Vine?

Zone Belfast | Anonymous added on June 20, 2021 | Answered

The vine is dense, surrounding a palm tree, covering an area of around 25ft x 20ft and is up to 7ft high in places. It is right next to our conservatory and I’m worried about how far the roots have spread and what damage it could cause to our foundations and brickwork. Hedge trimmers won’t cut it. Would a chainsaw work to cut such a dense vine? Assuming I can get it to ground level, what chemical treatment would kill the roots? I’m desperate to get it removed asap. Any advice would be gratefully received. Thank you.
