how to get rid of hawthorn hedge without digging out all the roots?



Cutting the top growth off at about 12" and digging the roots up is the only way I know to get rid of it.

Yes agree with Beatie, whats the reason for removing the hedge? if say it was really out of control then you could be quite ruthless with it and reduce the height and width, you could even hedge lay it.

It's so sad to see an established hedge be replaced by fencing.
