Hello,

We have an elder sapling growing around 2 foot in front of our house, which we need to remove. It is approximately 4 years old, and about 7 foot tall. It has grown inbetween concrete floors so at the moment it's impossible to try digging it up. Some people have said cut it down, while others have said this may strengthen the roots. Any advice about the right way to deal with it would be appreciated. Thanks a lot
