From the other postings, it is fair to guess, they have not dealt with cherry laurel. In my area, Pasco County, FL, we have more than our fair share of cherry laurel. Neighbors on four sides have grandfather trees. I pull seedlings all year. This has gone on for the past 8 years I have lived in Pasco County. Would be a blessing if a very Strong wind came through and wrecked havoc with whole lot of them!

I agree. Cherry laurels drive me crazy, too. Thousands of seedlings are pulled from my garden every year. Just because a plant is native does not mean that it is not invasive.
