Old Native Yucca Pups

I have raw land that has a few Yucca trees on it. There are several pups, however, they look pretty old. I've only seen cuttings taken from small yuccas, can I still propagate these? I'd like to spread them around the property if possible.
What kind of pruner could do this? Chainsaw?

If you're going to try any, the smallest one is the best bet - dig down a little into the dirt before you cut - a sharp pair of tree-limb "loppers" might work for you.

any dried seed pods lying about that you can plant the seeds from?
You ridiculous clown, did you think you could get away with it? This is my favorite tiny ad!
