That excavator would have came in handy for that lol.

I've used forks before. I don't like pulling with chains.

Sad part is a Yew can be cut real hard and will get new growth, a juniper wont.

As far as that Yew it should have been dug out by hand, and the roots wrapped in burlap and SOLD.
Chain was wrapped around bucket, bucket was high in the air, and the machine was under too much stress, the chain was still around the bucket when I personally pulled the chain, wasn't near the cylinder, you can see the cylinder in the pic has a nice bow in it, pretty crazy.
The pic of the first yew wasn't the yew we pulled today, i just showed that pic as a reference to what a yew looks like.

It's ok, but the first pic is still a yew, very tall yew that's been there awhile, and it's green, kinda looks like a juniper but it was trimmed tight every year so that might be why your mistaken it for a juniper. I think I'm more concerned about the truth of the yews in my pics than anyhing at this point, jk moving on now, I let ya''ll know the damage on the repair tomorrow hopefully.

I agree. Possible that there was something ready to fail or some sideways torque??
