Thanks everyone! I discovered quite a number of fruit bushes already planted in straight rows in this area so I thought I would wade in and see if it were possible to make them a bit more accessible.
Some of the older allotment holders who've been on site a while said there's also 'a good plum tree' in there somewhere but I haven't definitely identified that one yet.
The other trees aren't too big, mostly less than 5 years old or less so I was hoping to chop off/dig up or otherwise kill off and remove them.
I'll try and let you know how it goes (or you will see reports of a huge fire near my area on the news if it gets out of hand...). I'm going to keep my eye out for a tool as described as well.
