Its so sad to hear all of this is happening. But its for a good cause I guess. I hope the national trust does a good cause to all of these plants by selling them to a reputable nursery or something similar to that instead of just throwing them away. In the article, it says the all the sarrs were pulled out by hand but these S.purpurea's were from the original plants Adrian Slack planted himself in the 1960's so there's likely to be copious amounts of seeds, roots, and small parts of the rhizome left over. Which means that the national trust people would have to come back in a few years time again to remove them from the bogs. All of Adrian Slack's efforts wasted.
