    No idea. I have a feeling that if you wanted them, and had the perfect place for them, they'd all die a tragic death. How big an area, what is the ground like there? IF it's possible for you to cut them to the ground, remove as much of the root as possible, then put down a heavy layer of cardboard and about 8" of mulch, pulling up anything that surfaces, you might get rid of them in 2 years.

    Manually, and thoroughly and diligently and then cover the ground where they grew with alot cardboard or old carpet then as bits poke up find where they are rooted and pull them out.

    We have this company out here called Fire Goats, basically this guy has a bunch of goats and puts them in goat tractors!?! Wow never thought about that. Anyways they eat the vegetation to give housees the required fire break from the surrounding wilderness. Pretty genius idea if you ask me.
