I live in an area where early leaders went crazy planting cabbage palm trees. For some reason (which I can't see) they thought they were wonderful and lined many streets with the trees. As anyone familiar with the cabbage palm well knows, they have now taken over. They are every where. I really dislike them - I don't find them all that attractive. They don't provide shade, food, or flowers. They house rodents and roaches. And every time it rains or is windy my yard is a mess. The birds and racoons eat the berries and then the seeds are carried to other parts of my yard. The trees grow every where: in my azalea beds, in the confederate jasmine, in the cracks in the side walk. I cut the new growth down whenever I can (it is practically a full time job) but they just keep growing back. Can someone please tell me how to get rid of these awful trees.
