    this is an old bush. approx 10" diameter. on a yard that is flat then slopes down to the road.

    can you get access to it with a truck? usually when im doing bush removal, i wrap a chain around the base and yank it out with my truck

    Pulling it out is the method that I also use unless you will damage the turf or the surrounding beds. I find this to the easiest method and it gets rid of everything including the roots so that you can use the same area again for planting or fill in the low spot and seed.
