I do mostly lawn-care and the usual property maintenance stuff. Customer wants 36 5-6' arborvitae planted along 2 sides of the prop. I checked the digging situation. Numerous mature maples scattered in the area, so there are many roots (less than 1") to contend with. I thought of renting an 8" auger and poking 4 holes for each hole, and dig out the rest. Will the auger go through the roots? I could rent a Bobcat for $250, but doubt my Dakota would tow it. What to do with the extra dirt? Will the auger do the job or should I just wash my hands of this whole job? (I can get the shrubs for $34 each, so it looks like there is money to my made if I can do the installation without killing myself.) Thanks for any help on this dilemma.
