We took out a 100ft row of them a couple of years ago and made a flower border with shrubs at the back, they are not difficult to get out, best with two people though, as one wiggles and digs, the other cut off any holding roots. They are shallow rooted so not much digging.
a mattock or pick axe and some big loppers and your half way there.
this is it earlier in the year but it's grown a lot more now, the laurels are out, so more places to plant nice stuff.
