I was clearing land were an old wooden garage
was about a year ago for planting shrubs. The
garage was torn down due to a variety of reasons including termite damage. As I removed old debris I found termites in the soil. My neighbor has railroad lumber that he uses as a border and I suspect the termites are in that wood. I want to plant new shrubs but I fear that the termites will infest them. How can I get rid of the termites before I plant.

I don't believe termites will attack live shrubs. From what I understand, they usually devour dead or decaying wood which the railroad lumber in your neighbor's yard is.

You could try using some insecticides that specifically target termites and other wood-boring insects. Saturating the ground alongside your neighbor's railroad ties might help to destroy them. I'm not sure how well those termite spikes work, but you could try those as well.
