I want to remove 2 holly bushes from the ground. Can I just dig them out? What about the roots? The bushes have been there for about 30 years.

Yes, you can normally dig them out. I personally love using a sawzall for removing shrubs. Because it has a disposable blade, you can plunge it into the ground and cut through roots and dirt and remove stumps from shrubs and trees easily and not worry about ruining it.
