My Grandpa's land has been invaded by this plant for some time now. it grows about 3-4 feet high, can get pretty dense at times. Its fairly easy to pull out of the ground by hand, but most of the roots (which look like 1/2 inch thick branches, milky white on the inside) stay behind.

i've added some images.

if anyone has some info on this plant, i would really appreciate it.

Thanks
