Anyone have experience with Yaupon Holly scientific name IlexVomitoria. I have 3 large bushes in an area I could use for an outdoor enclosure. I need to know if they are safe to leave in place or should I remove them.

I don't know about the vomitoria species, but the aquifolium species is poisonous to torts. You know the old saying: "when in doubt..."
