Customer wants 170 ft of Privet Hedges removed. The base of each is about 12 inches apart and they are 5 to 6 ft high and 3 ft wide. Owner says they are 30 years old and that the balls of each are about 1 ft in diameter. They are very easy to access and I rocked a few while observing the base. It does not appear that the root structure will be too big. Some people have said that I will have no problems, others have said that it will be difficult. My main concern is the labor required to remove the balls/roots. I am thinking of cutting them ~18 inches above the ground, run that through a chipper, then pull the balls/roots with my truck. Good idea or no? What are your suggestions? What experiences have you had removing this type of hedge?
