    I bid a job for seasonal mowing for an older woman who needs quite a bit of work done. In addition to the mowing contract she wants me to remove a Holly Bush from her property. It's pretty large. I would guess 15' tall 12' wide.. What would be the best way to go about it? Should I just start cutting and loading the truck? I have never done a Holly so I don't know where to start. Any help would be great.

    Chainsaw.....cut some of the lower branches with loppers so you can get to the truck and whack it off. Then go up/down the trunk with the chain saw cutting of the branches so you can stack them in truck. We bundle stuff like that for trash man.

    Try cutting each section with hedgers , chainsaw.. whatever and lay a tarp on the ground to catch, and then just carry it wherever you need to go.

    Hook it to the truck and pull it out. I just pulled some that were about 6' x 8' and they came out really easy. I wouldnt waste time cutting it up if you can haul it in one piece.
