I need to remove a holly tree. Do the roots grow down or outwards?



Both I should think - is it quite big, if so you may need some help!!

Depending on the size, take all the main branches down then cut down in sections and leave a trunk of aprox 5ft, then dig round the base aprox 4ft round, cutting out all the near surface roots as you go down, then the remaining trunk you can use as leverage and this will help greatly in removeing the tree.
