Blood hell, that's a big bugger!
Good for you Brendan :)
You're both young and fit! The sort of work I used to love.....when I was young and fit. Now I do things such as Dave suggested with the tarp.
How satisfying will it be to get this cleaned up and something productive in it's place. Looks like you have a fairly big bit of land there.
Mulch, maybe -- but this ginger is an absolute bugger to control and fully remove. Up there with bamboo. I think it is now a declared weed in Qld.
Request: do not have a heart attack.
Getting out the root mass is the hardest part. Last time I tackled the plant I cut back the stems, then covered the remaining roots with a tarp until they died and rotted down. Any new shoot I slashed back.
Back hoe worked real well on another patch of my experience.
Lovely plant though...
