Syracuse NY Been reading the past posts on shrubs Any advice on removing these large shrubs? I would like to do it by hand with a chainsaw mattocks and root chopper, but it looks like a large job for one guy. 3-4' from foundation. Would renting a backhoe be cost effective to remove 6-10 of these large 5'-7' in diameter junipers? I want to save the customer some money and I am weighting the small backhoe vs. the backbreak. $375 a day vs $25 an hour labor? Yes I am calling to get utilities marked. Are these Junipers? Thank you, you guys are a wealth of knowledge!
