The roots wont be too big on a 7ft tre
ours were 25 years old and 28 of them,, you need an iron bar and a pick axe or matock, dig around the root, out a bit from the trunk, then just pick away, when you come to a long root, just snip it off, they will come out when you start to dig the ground for planting.
The view here is beautiful, i am very lucky to be able to live here. This was today, coffee on the patio, Dartmoor hills in the distance.
