The blade is hand sharpened on the one end. The other end is a mattock blade that's good for digging and grubbing out the roots and stumps of small trees and bushes. The interior of the eye in the head of the Pulaski Axe is tapered to provide a more secure fit. The heads are then hydraulically seated onto the handle and then secured with a serrated aluminum wedge, thus providing a maximum fit and hold.
The farther away the cutting mark is away from the trunk, the safer to cut.
I also vote for pulaski. Axe bit on one side, flat bit on the other. Get it sharpish and grub away. If you were to use any kind of saw, you would still have to excavate a bunch of earth around the roots to use stumpfalling.clubg: Pulaski VA.

To quote GOT, you just stick the pointy end in, give a wiggle and it slices through with little effort.
SE Minnesota. Jan 20, #6. We have an old double bit axe at work for chopping tree roots when installing blvd sidewalk.
Works great. I would not use a nice one though as sometimes you hit rocks! LipDawg. Jan 20, Estimated Reading Time: 1 min. The tool to use is a sabre saw. Get a cheap pack of blades and plunge it into the ground to the side of the root and cut through. Does the job really nicely but does kill blades.

It has sharp serrated shovel edges that can cut roots, weeds, and stumps without a hitch. If you feel the need to sharpen the blade, you can easily do so by using a wheel or edge grinder/5(K).
