There are only a few effective ways to managing aggressive species of plants: grazing, mowing/brush hogging (mechanical), and spraying chemicals. Over time, mechanical removal and/or spraying (using fuel/herbicide) can degrade a landscape and be harmful to the ecosystem.
On the other hand, grazing (ruminate) animals, such as goats, cows, and sheep, do not need gasoline or harsh chemicals to make a difference! They add nitrogen and nutrients back into the soil, and can improve the landscape as long as they are not confined in one place for too long . These animals have the ability to use the very plants that are causing you problems as their fuel.

Goats will graze; poison ivy, Japanese knotweed, buckthorn, honey suckle, multiflora rose, most hardwood trees and much more!
