Now, I understand that rules are rules and if there is to be any foliage around such publicly funded warehouses of not yet dead humanity, it must be of the useless ornamental variety, barren and devoid of any nutritional value, eye candy for the lords of those fiefs, if not the sterility of parched earth and pavement.
After all, taxpayers are paying for it!
Now, I'm going to ask you: What is the harm in allowing this man to grow bananas? He isn't doing so for profit, it lets him feel he is doing something useful. He gives them away.
Establish limits, OK. All or nothing? Scorched earth? Every day there are thousands of pages of new rules, rules devoid of any compassion or common sense, but in the name of law and order, this man's banana trees must be cut down
While those in Washington D.C. steal trillions of dollars, and our nations' future.
But hey, everyone has their part to play!
Walk a mile in his shoes and imagine your life with thumbs and stubs. Have something you CAN do. And then watch it cut away for 'the rules'.

Banana trees in a crowded complex would more correctly be called nuisance plants, rather than desirable or beneficial.
Aside from the problem of large fronds breaking off and being blown around, I wonder what kind of insects and pesky critters are attracted to banana trees. I imagine spiders, roaches, and rats are a given...can you see the harm yet?
Some rules are stupid. Some are very sensible.
