Our local Fen's stalwart steward, Al "da man" Wilson, has
a great technique honed over 15 years-in-restoring the Fen.
He and the volunteers (I was one) chop down buckthorns,
wild grape and other invasives and burn the piles in winter.
The stumps are sprayed with a chemical that is absorbed from
the cut end and kills the roots.
