Killing oleander plants

Does anyone have any advice on how to kill oleander plants in a very safe, non toxic and horse-friendly way?

In terms of a professional service who can do this -- where would I start even looking? I read online that digging up the plants and putting salt on the ground may help?

Additionally, do you know a cheap, non-toxic alternative that could be planted or brought in to replace large oleander plants after removal?

There are some plants near the arena where I ride and I've offered to pay to have them cut way back but I'm wondering if I can get them removed completely and for how much -- and how the owner could replace them so there is not an ugly hole in their greenery.

She was under the impression that the only way to really kill them was to spray poisons which is absolutely not an option.

If its a woody plant (it doesn't grow here) you can cut it down then drill small deep holes in the trunk and put salt in them. I've killed many trees and large shrubs this way. It works good and is non-toxic.
