Chris,

Unless it is a palm that has multiple trunks sprouting from the base, if you remove the top part on the stem the tree will not resprout or recover. Only the terminal bud at the top of the stem is capable of producing growth. Digging the tree up is another option.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
