Re: tow trucks


Three cheers for tow trucks! I've used a come-along, one end hooked to the bumper of my truck, to oust large plants a couple of times. Same principle, I suppose, but a tow truck sounds easier.

After 8-9 years my rose of sharon bush died. As you can imagine, it got
huge over the length of time, as it was a good size to begin with. Since
there was no signs of life after winter, decided I better get it out
before someone starts complaining as it was planted in the front yard.


I started digging up some stuff around it, cause I figured digging it
out would destroy them anyways. Due to lack of rain here, that ground
was hard than I thought.


Jim, I expected to see you filming this, as I called the tow truck
driver to come over.... less than a minute, it was out of the ground -
roots and all.... gotta love tow trucks! Of course, it took longer to
cut it up to fit in the back of the pickup to haul away.....


Anyways, I still don't know why it died? Roots didn't look chewed on ... no bugs or critters to be found....

who invisioned herself out there for days digging it up.....
