|Handy Brush Grubber|
Off and on this spring I've been pulling privet (brush) from my yard. I've pulled most of the little stuff using muscle along with a hand held 'Brush Grubber.' Anything too big for me I used a 1 ton electric wench on my riding mower. Anything too big for that I used the GMC to pull. Maryann is up and doing well now from her 2nd surgery, so she took pictures and created a blog A Natural Yard Where Ferns Flourish. You'll see the GMC in action pulling up one of the larger stumps of privet. The clumps get big when you cut them off at the ground each year for a few years. I've learned that it's better to pull them up than to cut them off. I still have one more spot that requires the use of the GMC on and I'll be done with the pulling for this spring.
