red tipped photinia

Anonymous added on July 24, 2015 | Answered

I need to completely remove some red tipped photinia bushes (mature - 12' tall). I am wondering what type of root system they have. Will there be a main taproot or various smaller roots? Thank you.

From what I understand, these shrubs have a fairly heavy, or extensive, root system. However, I believe as long as you are able to get out the majority of the root ball, you should be ok.
