    How do you plan to remove this? Do you have a skid loader, backhoe, or by hand? Will you be replacing it with anything? If I were able to access this with my Bobcat it would probably take around 2 hours to pull them, considering a standard privet hedge, maybe more if Lilac or evergreen. Add another two hours of hand cleanup, and dumping fees for around 4 trucks of lawn waste. Talk about a WAG I think it would be in the vicinity of $500 for destruction and haul. It all depends>

    Is this the same RAYMOW i just read an article about?

    As to your question - what kind of plant? Dump fees here are $43/ton - depending on how dense & thick it is - I'm guessing about 2 -4 tons of shrubs. I'd have to sub-out that work, way too much to do by hand & I don't own a Bobcat.
