Answer: Removing oleanders can be a daunting task! Cutting them down to the stump and hoping they'll fade away, won't work. You need to get down there with a shovel and chop out the crown area. It's a lot of work and you may need to use a stump grinder to get rid of all the buds.
Here are some removal tips:
You can use a chain saw, backhoe and stump grinder.
You can hire a certified arborist or certified tree worker or rent the tools yourself.
Professional estimates will depend on the size and location of the plant, and may or may not include foliage removal, chipping and cleanup. Expect to pay up to $25 per foot for removal of a mature shrub.
To have a professional grind out the stump, which can grow two feet below the ground, expect to pay $2.50 to $4 per diameter inch.
Or, you can do it yourself with a stump grinder. Rent one at Home Depot for $79 a day.
Hope these sugestions help!
