These bushes weeds have extensive root systems that sprout new plants as soon as top growth is cut. In addition to the invasive nature of the plant, oleanders are prone to disease and pest problems. Stump grinders are a traditional tool for tree and shrub removal, but can be dangerous to use. However, gardeners have other options to eliminate the roots of oleander.
