Get a couple people and push them over. I had no problem pushing these plants over, up to 6 feet tall, in our mesic soil woodlot. Or you could get a PullerBear.
As a note, I tried to purchase a Weed Wrench. However, all I got was an anti-government rant by the owner announcing he was ending this business.

I have many large invasive shrubs (mostly Viburnum plicatum and Lonicera maackii) in the county park near me. I am not able to use herbicide in this setting and the plants are mostly too large for a weed wrench. I would like to do a simple trial testing a handful of techniques in the late summer and the same techniques in the spring. Here are my ideas so far:
Cut at 24 inches (facilitates repeated cutting)Cut as low as possible lowCut and peel back the bark (appears to help kill broom)Tarp (works well on Eucalyptus)
Are there any techniques you have seen work better than others for non-chemical shrub control?
