How to remove???

Do i need to rent a dingo to get these out? Or will two guys myself and partner, with pick axe and shovels be able to get them out.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I have no experience in shrub/tree removal.

They are the ones alone the house that all look like one big shrub. I think they are (25) yrs old.

Whiffy,

Thanks for the reply.

I will go with the dingo toro and do you have a suggestion for attachment or how to go about. Sorry if I sound ignorant about the subject I have never been around a mini skid steer. Also any estimate on how long with the dingo?

Thanks

Mini ex is the right answer but based on what you've said I might recommend a seasoned hand helps you with this. At least get some practice time in first. Thats pretty close to the house to be swinging the bucket if you've never been around one before.

If the roots can stay cut the main stems with a chainsaw and treat the stumps. Before you pull them check for landscape fabric. It will make a real mess when it comes out with the bushes.

Before you do anything, get the utility locations marked. They do that for free in Jersey and I assume it is free everywhere. You do not want to hit anything. Here one call is all it takes. You may be able to pull them out with a chain and your truck, once the roots are partially cut.

Like a few above said, I would use a mini-ex. It will definitely be the quickest. It will also do a lot less damage to the grass than a dingo, since the mini will have more reach and not need to be repositioned as many times. If Dingo is the only option I would cut a lot of the shrub back, then use forks on it to dig down around the roots. Depending on how those roots are the forks might be able to pop the plants up and out of the holes. The issue with a dingo is that you are going to be repositioning it a lot and will tear up that turf.
