The Q&A Archives: banana tree

Question: How do I get rid of a banana tree? I have cut off most of the shoots and plan to cut down the remaining ones. But I have stumps left and I don't want new shoots to pop up.

Answer: To completely eliminate the plant you will need to dig out the stump and the roots. It won't be an easy job but if you don't the plant will continue to send up sprouts. Good luck with your project!
