Lifting the bushes

893 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  marcusmerritt
Ford 2000; 3 cyl gas; 4/1 trans....I have some mature holly bushes and some privet hedge that I would like to pull up roots and all. Is it feasible to use my lift to pull these out of the ground? Trunks on the holly are 3"-5" diameter, smaller on the privet. If feasible, should I use a strap or chain? Anyone done this successfully? Any particular method of wrapping strap or chain? Thanks.

Thanks for the photo....I have plenty of chain so can rig up a pulling chain similar to the one you showed. May have to cut one holly bush out by hand since it's right over the water line coming into the house. Would like to avoid any wet surprises.
