I have removed dead hebe shrub
How do I remove some remaining deep roots
I wish to plant a different tree



Your only option is to dig them out, or most of them anyway. If you want to plant a tree, it makes sense to give the area a thorough digging anyway, incorporating also some well composted manure or similar prior to replanting.

I would remove as many dead roots as possible over an area 1/2 meter deep, and 1 1/2 meters wide before planting any woody plant.
