I just bought 5 of them and I think they are great, for screen or hedge and that is what they are made for they have great aromatic spring flowers and beautiful color, I would keep them....but trim them to the height of 6 or 7 feet. You might want to call a gardner who will remove them, probably tie a rope around the base and pull them out. Are they a barrier between you and the neighbors?? that is what I bought mine to do.....Well good luck. Keep Gardening!
: I have 8 small red tip photinia bushes that I want to remove. They were a poor choice by a previous owner. I have kept them trimmed small, but I'm sure their roots are growing madly. How can I remove them and their roots without a huge amount of digging?
