    On a dead multi trunk removal your idea looks like it worked. The fact that you were able to continue to cut away at the roots while providing upward pulling pressure was the key. On living material a noose closer to the ground may be in order for a snugger non slip surface.

    Yes, always make the one-call line locating and give a disclaimer to customer about damage to marked and unmarked lines.

    Actually all the shrubs & trees were alive and well. It's what surprised me so.
    The Crepe myrtle was the only one I "helped" along with a root-buster hand tool.

    Here's a couple of alive & well examples:

    Here she is as I remove the dirt from rootball. I bet 200# of dirt was removed while in the air. Saved a considerable amount of time having it up off the ground.
