How best to dig up these pest camphor laurels?
Hey all, in my back yard currently are some camphor laurels, which from a far look like one tree, but as you get close you notice its actually a clump of about 10 trees. I would dig these guys out, as they are an invasive pest.
I dont have any tools apart from a shovel, pickaxe and hand saw (well, there is a chainsaw in the garage but dont know how to use it, and I think the hand saw will be sufficient..)
Will this be enough to do this job? If any one has any experience with a similar task, about how much of a challenge will I be in for? DO their roots run deep, or are they pretty easy to dig up. They are growing on clay.
Here are some pics for reference.
