|I have a small Fan Palm tree in a corner of my front yard that is growing rapidly. I don't want it in that location. Will there be any significant adverse affect if I just cut it off at ground level and let the stump rot out?

|You'll definitely kill the palm if you cut it off at ground level and the fibrous stump and root system should die out within a year. It won't resprout so you can either dig it out or simply cover it over with soil.
