    So I need to take these things out... I think they are Icee Blue Junipers, anybody care to confirm?

    How would you take these suckers out without any heavy machinery. Most of it has to be done by hand or possibly a long rope and a truck from the street if that would be any help.

    About how long do you think it will take? How deep do the roots of these go?

    Thanks...

    the roots on those shouldn't be too bad. I recently bid a shrub removal @ $100 to pull out 4 low junipers like that (around 3' dia each). I had them out in 10 minutes for all of them. I almost felt guilty about that one. All I used was a round nose spade and some elbow grease.

    a logging chain might be a better idea.....

    How many are there actually? I would figure around $75 each. If they are a ragular customer, discount the amount a little if everything comes out faster than you thought.

    Ummmm, I wouldn't charge 75 a peice, but its going to be a ***** to get all those out. Truck and chain baby!!! Might even have to use a rototiller afterwords if u plan to plant anything in there. The Roots on those things are GAY. :weightlifter:

    lol thanks... I will just pull them out, no planting for me. That is for the other guy that is going to come in so it isn't my problem. :)
