Large Tomcat 7 log files 'tomcat7-stdout.(Date).log'

We have Tomcat 7 installed on a Windows 2008 R2 SP1 server, that is running low on disk space.
There are a number of 'tomcat7-stdout.(Date).log' that range in size from 6GB to 68GB.
Is it possible to remove/delete these log files?

They are NOT required for the correct functioning of Tomcat. As to whether they should be deleted or moved somewhere else is a decision only you can make. Perhaps you or someone involved with the app on that server may want to refer to those logs at a later point in time.

You also may want to look at (or have someone look at) the logging settings for any applications running on Tomcat because at 68G in size, I would guess that it is logging a lot of less than useful noise to the log file. Especially since I guess that they are daily log files (since they have the Date in the filename), that is a lot of log entries for one day!
