How do you kill a saw palmetto?


Depends on who you ask.
There are products such as Sahara that will kill a palmetto. BE CAREFUL with this stuff.
Round up generally doesn’t work on palms.
A citrus farmer will tell you Diesel fuel.
It only takes a cupful poured into the center of the palm and it will be dead in 2 weeks.
This is not environmentally friendly but is effective.

    Have you tried cutting it down? or Roundup? roundup kills anything that is plant material.
