Anyone know an easy way of getting rid of yaupon that doesn't involve a lot of axe work. Yanking it out is not an option.

There are herbicides that will work, check with your local extention office.

Yaupon (pronounced Yo'-pohn) is a small tree, or big shrub that grows in the south. It is sometimes called yaupon holly because it is evergreen and has red berries that make it look like holly, particuarly in the winter.

Kind of worthless stuff, unless you're a bird. I use a chainsaw to get the big stuff, and a shredder to get the little ones. There are a couple of really big ones on my property (2 inch trunks) that I left alone.
