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

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?

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.
