View Full Version : Removing Ligustrum Trees

06-02-2002, 11:11 PM
I have 16 mature (10-15 Years) Ligustrum trees to remove and I was wondering how difficult it is going to be to remove them? Can I just dig them up or are the root structures going to be to thick? Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

Thank You

If my school days dont fail me, you are talking about privets, right?? If so, how tall are they???

I have removed them by spading around them to cut roots severel feet out from trunk then putting a strap around them and snatching them out with my truck. They are shallow rooted and come out pretty easy.
