Customer wants some bushes removed

Never took these kinds of bushes out before. Matter of fact I don't know what there doing in Ohio. There a Florida bush. What's the best way by hand to remove these things. And is $50 each enough to remove. Newbie question here forsure but never seen this type of bush.

Yuccas - yes, they seem to grow well around old people.

Those plants must have been all the rage 40-50 years ago.
I've never seen them on a property that wasn't owned by old people, or where the old people had died and new owners had moved in.

I don't think I've ever seen one of those plants for sale in a nursery.

(because people stopped buying them 40 years ago, I would wager)

Be careful, if you haven't noticed yet they are sharp.

Would y'all suggest cutting them down with chain saw than digging the root out.
