When you get to the stem, use a sharp blade or knife to cut the stalk to about 1 inch from the trunk.

Feb 11, If you choose to treat the tree’s roots, there is a chemical herbicide option, which works fast to eliminate roots, or the more natural option of using rock salt, which is equally effective but takes longer. You can also use Epsom salt or another highly concentrated form. Table salt won’t do the trick.
Remove Roots Using a Chemical CompoundEstimated Reading Time: 7 mins. Banana tree removal. I have finally dug up the last of the group of banana trees in my backyard.
It was producing little or no fruit and was brown and diseased for the most part. Because it was occupying and shading valuable space in my small garden area it needed to be removed. I am at the point where I have a bunch of dirt and 3 large holes. Easiest, cheapest, most satisfying way to get rid of banana trees (seconding texanjana): put an ad on Craigslist. DO NOT pay anyone (including Monsanto) to make a banana tree go away.

Really something else.
They stretch a good feet from the plants. The extensive root system is one reason the banana trees are able to sustain themselves so well during the summers even when the weather is dry. I tried to show the fat thick roots in the above.
