Default How do you poison a conifer?

Does anyone know the best poison for destroying conifers?

I have a troublemaker of a neighbour who for spite has planted a row
of conifers down the edge of his land but right outside my windows. I
expect in 5 years to have almost no light.

Now what is the best way to kill these trees without resorting to
cutting them down?

Could anyone recommend a good poison, something that is difficult to
prove that I am the culprit?

Ask your council for a complaint form if the hedge is all of these: 2 or more mostly evergreen or semi-evergreen trees or shrubs. over 2 metres tall. affecting your enjoyment of your home or garden because it's too tall.

Dunno. Anything available in 2002 has been removed by elf'n'safety as it
would have been effective.

Use a time machine to go back and kill it as a seedling in 2002.

A regular theme of much science fiction.

Drill holes in trunk at a downward slant.
Fill holes with Ammonium Sulphamate.

Stick twigs into the holes.
Wait two years for tree to die.
