The best way to remove roots from the ground is the old school method and dig them up. There are some products that claim to dissolve roots away but I've never seen them work the miracles they claim.

Clear access to pull them out? If so, I like the chain around the trunk with the other end tied to a truck method.

I had a hedge alongside my driveway that was a real pain to maintain. Twice I cut it down to the ground and both times it grew back to more than five feet high in the space of a couple of years. I finally sprayed it with an all-purpose vegetation killer and it died within a week. I had to use a small circular saw blade in my sidewinder grinder to cut the stalks and then the roots to totally get rid of it.

That was a few years back. Due to health problems I wasn't able to get it all and while it still is dead I need to get the rest of it cut out from the ground. Waiting for it to simply rot will take far longer than the years I have left on this earth.

I agree with Mitch on this one.
One quick pull and it's completly out.

I've not always gotten by with just one quick pull..... but a chain and my tractor or truck works best

Tractor clutches don't slip, and if the chain breaks it won't damage your tailgate or windshield (BTDT)
