I'm playing with the Redpower mod and spawned near a village. After helping it grow, I've run into a problem where some rubber trees are blocking building space (in addition to looking ugly).
There are about 4 other trees nearby not included in this image.
First, I tried to burn them down, but found out that neither their leaves nor their wood is flammable. Then I tried to cut down one of the trees, but I gave up after about half an hour.
How can I get rid of those trees and the leaves of those trees that got partially removed by the Millénaire mod faster without using TNT and blowing up the village completely?
