Cedar tree shoots

I have a lot of shoots coming out around my cedar trees. Can I cut them out or should I leave them? They look awful. I would like to know the easiest and most efficient way to remove them, please. Thank you.

The little sprouts can be coming from seeds or the roots.
You will not want to use herbicides on the sprouts or it can travel to the main tree and kill it too.
Pulling them up is the safest way to remove them.
