Holly Bush Removal

Anonymous added on April 13, 2011 | Answered

We have cut our holly bushes down to the stumps and would like them removed. We are having a terrible time, as they are so close to the house. Thought you may have a way to kill or perhaps some removal tips.

I would recommend using a sawzall. They have enough power to get into the thick stump and, because they have a replaceable blade, you can even cut into the roots in the dirt and cut through them as well.

Any fresh cuts on parts of the stump left in the ground, paint with concentrated Round-Up. This will kill what is left and keeps it from growing back.
