Birds of Paradise, extensive pruning
We have several very mature birds of paradise with trunk diamaters of 8-10 inches. They have overgrown the planters. I would like to cut them down to 2-3 ft and have them grow again at ground level instead of 15 ft in the air. Can I do it without killing them or do I need to cut down, pull out and replace?
