Can I Cut a Large Bird of Paradise in Half?

Anonymous added on March 17, 2016 | Answered

I have a large bird of paradise which has a trunk about 20 ft high. I would like to cut it down to about 8-10 ft tall. Can I do this? Will it regenerate leaves at the cut off point? I live in San Clemente, Ca.
