Q. getting rid of yucca plants

what best way to remove yucca plant without using harsh chemicals

This is going to be a long, difficult process. They will spread by tubers so removing the parent plant will not be enough.

I would recommend digging the plant out, and tilling or breaking up the area as much as possible to try and kill off the living portions of the roots and tubers. Next, you will want to pour boiling water on the area once or twice a day for two or three days.

With some vigilance, you can get rid of them. This article will offer more information on eradicating this persistent plant: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/foliage/yucca/removing-yucca.htm

A.

Yucca is native to many areas of the Americas. In North America, Mexico and the US Southwest have the most native species. Some species are also native to Central America. However, of the 49 species of yucca, some are native all the way into Canada. In warmer climates, yucca can assume tree form. In colder regions, it is a low, ground-hugging plant.

Q. Yucca Tree cutting

When I am working on my Yucca do I always need to wax the trunk when cut? If not when do you know to do This? Rescued a Yucca, please help!

It is not completely necessary to wax a cut, as it will heal just fine on its own. This is, primarily, done professionally to reduce disease. When there are several plants in close proximity, it is necessary to take precautions.

Waxing is popular with fruit trees, or otherwise any other plant prone to infection from pruning. Yucca aren't too particular here.
