What kind? Usually cut all around it with a shovel, tie a rope, pull it out with whatever machine you have i.e quad, truck, lawn mower



Whoody whoody woo!

First, get some lotion. Then, some Kleenex. Then, start with the lumberjanes pictured above...



You said, "pull a root" right?



That's not an Aussie expression?

Do you have to leave so soon? I was just about to poison the tea.

Use a high pressure water hose and wash enough soil away to expose the smaller roots. Cut those and the rest is easy.

Good luck,

I've cut roots with a reciprocating saw then pulled with a truck but I wish I'd have thought about the water hose mentioned above. Still easier than I had thought it would be.

And by "square off" you mean...?



A little Doggy Style perhaps?





Wait, what?

Do you have to leave so soon? I was just about to poison the tea.
