This will be quite a daunting task. These have spreading roots that will likely resprout even more vigorously after removal.

Unfortunately, Hollies are known for being hard to remove, and very aggressive in fighting for survival after. It would be best to have a tree service to assess the situation. This link will help you to find your closest extension service: [1]
