    This article gets into more detail. But it boils down to the fact you have to dig up all of the roots. Every piece that is left behind will sprout.

    Post them on a local "craigslist" type online market for free on condition of proper removal. Might contact a landscaper to see if they want them for the price of removal. Have fill dirt ready!

    HI there Pat, we just removed a very big Yucca in our front garden and it was tough going. We used a contractor that we found online. They started by using a chain saw to cut the Yucca down to a manageable size, it was over 6 meters tall. That's about 19 feet. The poor contractors had to sharpen the chainsaw blades every 1/2 hour. The sap in the Yucca dulls the blade. When it was cut down almost level with the ground they chopped it up and dug the whole thing out. You have to remove all the pieces to stop it form coming back. It's definitely not something we could have done ourselves. If you do get a contractor make sure they have the right insurance
