Goats - I don't imagine they would eat the canes until there was nothing much else to eat in the area. Simple job with tree clippers, strong hand clippers, or saw-type brush cutter on a weed whacker though. To permanently kill (though you can eventually kill by cutting down to ground leverl and then keeping mowed close), first twice (about 10 days apart) spray or paint the leaves with a brush and shrub killing killer like Ortho Roundup - Poison Ivy and Tough Brush Killer.

To get a contractor for this, most Lawn and Yard Care companies will do it - or a Landscaping company if you want the roots dug out too (meaning typically about 1 foot of digging depth and soil removal and replacement with clean fill or sod or whatever.
