If its the smaller pine tre to the front then it might come out easier than you think. In the past when removing pine trees I have ...
Chopped it down to leave a 6ft tall stump, then cut all the lower branches off so you left with just the tall stump.
Dig out a circular trench around the tree to reveal the roots, keep digging out and try and get under the root ball. Use a pick axe to chop through the roots in the trench.
Then, using the tall trunk as leverage, push and pull it back and forth which should start snapping the roots.
