Ever since we moved into this house the giant juniper bush in the front yard has been a thorn in our sides. Finally we decided to bite the bullet and have it removed. Of course I had to first try to remove it myself and you'll see from the pictures I didn't get very far. I spent about 8 hours attacking the juniper and was only able to remove about 10% of it. Ken's Yard Service came and removed the entire thing, ground the stumps, and hauled the debris in a little under 3 hours.
Here is a slideshow of the progress we've made. The first few pictures are the miniscule progress I made.
