Default Composting banana trees

Hi and Happy Thanksgiving from zone 8b, Conroe, TX.

"How do you use bananas for compost?" We have successfully transplanted pups from a 40 yr old mat to better areas. (Thanks for the tips!) It's time for the old mat of huge trees to come "out".

I'd appreciate your ideas.

Default Re: Composting banana trees

Chop them up just like any other yard waste (a chipper works great) and throw them in a tumbler or start a pile.
Search the board for "compost" there's some other threads about composting bananas.
Apologies in advance if I am slow to reply to your PM. I suggest posting in the forums for support if you need something urgent.
