Any practical way to remove a hedge fence? Beginner here


if it were me, i'd just take out my Dolmar with the longass bar and chainsaw the mess out.
orrrr... if it was safe to do so, gasoline and a match would make short work of it too. but in an alleyway, i would not advise that.
dragging it out will leave a lot of ground to be repaired/holes filled.

I'd start digging first. I took out 5 bushes in about 20 minutes. On the other hand, I've had to pull a few out with a truck as well. If you have anything larger the a four cylinder you should be fine in getting the shrubs out.

why not just cut them down?

depending on what it is, often times they grow back.

Or you could just cut them flush with the ground with a chainsaw and pour Roundup (straight, not diluted) on the stumps immediately after.

I have over 100' of shrubs that I need to pull out next summer. I will place an ad on Craigs List offering "Free Mature Shrubs" to whoever will come dig them up.

Why not, I saw an ad for a dead apple tree. The guy wanted to charge you $40.00 to cut it down and hall it away. Claiming it is firewood. He is a nice guy though, he will not make you take the stump.
