    Are you talking about lighting a fire? Don't know about you but my insurance company would just love that. Don't think it would kill off the blackberries anyway.

    Ask you insurance agent. He could probably use a good laugh. The liability here is not worth the $.

    cut them down, haul out the waste, dig out the roots. the only way to get rid of them. burning will not work.

    I was just reminded that goats love blackberries. Mine are in the back yard eating the honeysuckle and blackberries out of the azaleas.

    hack them down with long handle hedge trimmer, throw onto the lawn and run over them with a Billy Goat or DR brush mower and mulch them into the yard
