Removing Large Sago Palm

Anonymous added on April 13, 2012 | Answered

We have a large sago in our backyard. We need to remove it. It has several pups. Do these large sagos have roots like a tree? Are they hard to remove?

They hate to be moved, so it shouldn't be difficult to get rid of it. I would start by pruning it back and then digging it up, getting as much of the surrounding dirt as possible to ensure you have gotten the entire root ball and root system. You may also want to treat the are with Roundup to kill any leftove roots that may be present.
