Bird of Paradise Wall Damage
I am cutting a giant bird of paradise away from a wall. The root and base have grown together for 30 years. What is the best way to remove the part by the wall and save the 3/4 of the trunk wiht 15-foot stacks? I want to save it as it is a beautiful part of our yard.

If the plant is that large, you should be able to cut away the part of the plant near the wall and it will not cause any problems. You may see reduced blooming for a year or so, but other than that, it should be fine.
