Cypress trees...what to do with 'em

I have a row of cypress trees denoting one property line. There are 14 of them, about 30-40 ft. They are useless as a fence as the bottom 10 ft of each is completely denuded. Nothing grows in a 6 ft strip either side - is there some miracle plant that would enjoy this hostile environment? If I have them removed, will the soil recover? As an Englishman in Portland, Oregon, I'd dearly love a beech hedge there...

What is this enormous plant?

This has appeared in my Portland, Oregon yard. It's about 8 ft tall, its leaves are monstrous and it's reproducing- there was one of them last year, there are now about five. It has large, furry leaves and a thick, green stem which has white pips on it. Gardening Mefites, what is it?
