I have planted this rare variety of butea monosperma tree which is a legume in garden. It has been three years since I planted it. It started to grow well at first and reached a height of 1.5 feet only after which it stopped growing. It is growing out new leaves which are big and healthy and main shaft is woody about an inch thick. It grows bushy but not growing upwards in height. After pruning it grew out fast bushy not in height it still remains the same.

My suspect is there are palmyra palm trees nearby which might be sucking the nutrients out. Will cutting down the palm trees result in growth of this tree? Please advice.
