Killer Honeysuckle Trunk
1 Attachment(s)

Alright this is my first post here, I've already gotten a ton of awesome information, but I need some help with this one. I just bought a house, and it had this giant honeysuckle plant (more like 20 plants) that had grown to a height of about 30 feet. After an entire 4th of July weekend spent hacking and chipping it, we are now left with the stump. Now normally I would call in a truck, wrap a chain around it and call it a day. While we were trying to axe it out, we quickly realized that not only had the plants knotted themselves together above, but underneath it is just a giant tangle of roots and trunks. So while a normal plant would just have a single root system, this is completely tangled together, and a giant mess. Would you guys think I need to be worried about damaging the truck by trying to pull this thing out?
