: I have 3 large Arborvitae that have really been affected by recent snow fall. Most of the limbs have broken about 5-6 feet from the base. There isn't really much hope of saving them. My question is this: Can someone inform me of the root system for this tree?Each one stands approx. 15 feet high. How much of a hassle is it going to be to remove the stumps/roots? Thanks for any help.

Hi Jim,

That sounds awful. What a shame for you. I would say that you're going to need several friends with strong backs and good shovels or you can rent a mini bobcat. The rental place will deliver for a small charge and show you how to use it.

We dug out 5 tree stumps that way! Good luck,
