Is there any way to kill yews to make them easier to remove?

    My suggestion: Is to keep the plants/trees pruned back; I know they spread easily & produce an abundance of berries. If you can't reach enough of the tree to prune it yourself, have a professional tree expert come in & give you an estimate.

    I helped a friend pull some out with a chain attached to a ball on a car and they came out. Water the soil first so it would be easier to pull out the roots. Maybe round up or weed be gone would help kill them first.

    I had a neighbor with a small bobcat pull them out. Otherwise prune, prune, prune.
