mini-ex with thumb, or come-along---make sure though when connecting chains to stump and come-along to an anchor ( another tree ) that everything in the connection is all rated at the same weight ...we hooked up a big stump with a come-along, carabeaner snapped and almost hit one of my guys in the from know on we check everything out , and make sure everything matches up, but it works GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A tractor works well. A come-a-long also works well. Both might require some minor mattock work, but not enough to break a sweat. As for damaging utilities... If you're pulling out mature, established shrubs, you better have all utilities marked. It's simple, free and a basic principle for landscape contractors. Can something still go wrong? Yes. But this is true even if you hand dig.
