I have a natural pond with a wide variety of fish and critters in it. My cat tails have taken over the pond, I can hardly see into the middle. They seem impossible to pull out. Any suggestions on removing them?

what we have done

is take an ax to them in the water. If you do not have an ax try a hatchet or a hand saw, They are tough roots to pull out.

I'm told,

Cattail tubers can be cooked and eaten, they are similar to and related to onions.
