That's the $200 solution. Or just cut it as short as practical and
wait for it to rot. Drilling some holes in it to catch and hold
water will help it rot quicker. Mostly depends on where it is and
how noticeable. I have a stump I took the rotting approach with that's
off to the side, not so noticeable.

tried them. Some I think use potassium nitrate or similar to saturate
it, then you burn it out. Call me skeptical, but the OP could google
Not familiar with palm trees but if stumps are in area which detracts
from property appearance I have them ground to the ground level. My tree
cutter charges extra but it is not too much. You can also rent the
grinding machine. Otherwise they will eventually rot out. Palm looks
pretty porous in the center and drilling holes and adding fertilizer
will accelerate rotting. If safe you can drill holes, add nitrates and
burn. We've had termites in the area and they do a job on them. After
I saw what they did on pine stumps and roots running almost to my house,
I had perimeter treated even though I never had termites.
