    Hey guys.. Just quick question as to how concerned should i be with yanking these shrubs out, specially the two really tall ones(as pictured), since there so close to house/siding/foundation. I plan on using a mini-excavator. Better idea?

    Mini-x is best. Just call 811 to mark all the lines first so you don't dig up a water or gas line.

    That's fine if you want to tear the yard up, snap a chain and send it through a window. And look like a hack in the process. Lol

    Some shrubs will pull very easy with a chain and 4wd and will not damage the lawn.

    That big one does not.

    Just cut them down with a chainsaw. A mini X will go right throught the siding when you work the joysticks wrong.
