How to dig up bush roots?

Answer

To remove bush roots after you've cut the bush down, use a sharp spade and some elbow grease to dig them up. Dig around the root ball enough to remove some dirt, and then take hold of it and try to wrestle it out of the ground. If the roots are too engrained in the soil, you can hire a professional to dig them up with a stump grinder, although that can be costly. Another option for ornery roots is to take a mattock and dig a circle around the root. Using an axe, chop into the root, and then using a come-along with some chain, yank the roots out.

In order to successfully dig up bush roots, you have to consider what type of plant you are dealing with. For plants that do not have a large or stubbor root ball, like liliacs, you can simple dig them up with a shovel. For more stubborn roots, like junipers, you can tie a chain, around the roots, and pull out with a car or truck. In some cases, you can use a stump remover product.
