Don`t nail copper into a tree it will kill it quickly, Copper nails are
how you easily kill a tree you don`t want. Im getting rid of a few
maples that way.

trees (citrus, particularly) are good for curing a number of ailments.
Curly Leaf is one that comes to mind. It's the same thing as adding
copper sulphate to the soil, but in a 'slow release' form.
I use about 4 nails per tree.

Let us know how you make out. I have tried this several
times and it appears to be an old wive's tale.

Easiest way I know of to kill a tree (why??) is to 'girdle' it.  This was
used in the 1800's quite often when clearing land.

Just cut a ring in the bark around the circumference of the tree wide and
deep enough to interrupt the sap flow.  Dead tree within a season.

But the neighbours will see that technique!
