I have to say that the most tedious job I've encountered so far has been the
two year methodical removal of the 30+ year old forsythia.........Now if
only I could find that young person who removed poison ivy from pine trees,
I'd be in garden heaven, considering I have several Jack pines that have
poison ivy and poison oak on them despite my efforts to sever them from the
madgardener needing to invest in gallons of RoundUp..............
Last fall I tried to remove an ancient forsythia bush that had outgrown
its location, and started to eat [or at least try to grab] passerbys and
neighbourhood pets. After several days of trying to remove the root ball,
I eventually hired one of the neighbourhood teens...
... I don't know that he [and his friends] will ever forgive me - but they
did manage to get the darn'd thing out of the ground ;>
Beyond that - on the list of chores that I'd willingly pay somebody else
to do... double digging, and digging out wonderful [Hah!] invasives
like vinca, viola and hedera. I swear that all of those plants are almost
able to walk on their own!
