Removing Overgrown Plants

We have a very large Sago palm with many heads and pups. It is in a very small area and needs to be removed. How deep do the roots go? Must we dig it up, or can we cut it back and kill it?

Cut it back and paint the open wounds with undiluted Round-Up right after you cut the main plant down. This should kill it without having to dig up the roots.
