Why do I need to get rid of my yucca stump?
Many first home owners are entranced by the appeal of yuccas and plant them in their yard; as a resilient (hard to kill, for those with less than a green thumb) and evergreen plant, they look good in a garden and bring a modern and strong aesthetic. That being said, their resilience can easily turn into a problem, with their complicated root system, rapid growth and their constant thirst for water meaning that things can quickly get out of hand in your garden.
Many gardening incidents with yuccas have resulted in serious injuries, and many experts recommend planting native alternatives instead.
Unlike most other tree removal work, the story unfortunately isn’t over when you cut down the yucca. Yucca stumps wreak just as much havoc as their tree counterparts; their roots dig deep and can reemerge years later, damaging any structures you may have built in their place. The stump grows wider and wider as time passes, increasing the amount of damage that they can do to your property. They can upend your carefully curated garden bed, destroy or weaken your fences and are even strong enough to lift up and crack through your concrete. If the roots are close enough to your house and get into the pipes and structure, the results could be catastrophic.
Besides this, the stumps are also unsightly, a tripping hazard, and the rot that settles in soon can become a termite magnet or grow mould and disease that can be unsafe for pets and children.
So, whether you’re removing your yuccas to make room for some renovations or renovating your garden, or simply getting rid of your out-of-control yuccas, it is important to make sure that you get a professional stump removal to help you with the job to prevent any disasters down the road.
How do you get rid of yucca stumps?
If a yucca stump is currently causing chaos on your Melbourne property, it may be time to consider getting professional help from a tree removal expert. Yuccas grow rapidly and have an extensive (and tough) root system, meaning that this stump removal is a bit more tricky than your standard tree removal. You’ll want someone who has lots of experience taking care of
It takes persistence to win the war against yuccas in your yard — luckily, you have us on your side! As a professionally-qualified tree stump removal specialist, we have the top-of-the-line tree stump grinding equipment and the technical know-how to make sure that your tree stump removal goes as smoothly as possible. We help you solve your yucca problem by tackling the tree stump itself and all the tough, sinister roots lurking below ground level.
Stump grinding is the best, most effective and most affordable way to get rid of a yucca stump causing problems on your property. Using our stump grinder, we cut the tree stump into small bits of reusable wood chips that makes great garden mulch for you to use later. Most importantly, this process helps to destroy the yucca’s root system faster; by grinding up the stump underneath the ground, the tree roots are unable to access all the nutrients that they need to thrive. While a yucca’s roots are more resilient than most plant life, this means that it is far less likely to make a return appearance months or years later.
While we can’t guarantee that the yuccas won’t ever emerge on your property again — it can sometimes take several attempts to completely remove the root system — with our expertise, we can help to speed up the process of removing the yuccas from your garden for good.
Rather than removing the stump by digging it out, which can cause far more damage to your garden and is a more hazardous process in general, stump grinding allows you to rehabilitate the area quicker and prepares it for any future landscaping or garden renovations.
What chemical kills yucca?
There are a wide range of herbicides that can be used to kill yuccas in your yard by drilling deep into the tree stump and injecting it inside. It is important to note, however, that this should only be used as a desperate last resort to kill the yuccas, due to the impact that it will have on the rest of your plant life.
Even if you do use chemicals to kill any yuccas in your yard, this method doesn’t work as well at killing the yucca for good. With its extensive root system, some tree roots can survive and, a few months or years down the line, the plant can poke its way out of the ground again. Not worth it, when you consider the damage that the chemicals will do to the rest of your property.
If you want to kill yuccas through more natural means, then stump grinding is a more effective and more environmentally-sound tactic. Chemicals can have a very harmful effect on the rest of your plant life in the garden and, if you have any children or pets, may not be the most advisable solution.
Overall, the best way to make sure that your Melbourne property is protected from any further yucca infestation down the road is to have tree stump removal experts who have years of experience in safely and effectively stump grinding to remove those hazardous tree stumps.
