Question Palm tree question, bismarck palm

I have a couple of bismarck palms for the front of the house which I put out each spring and keep them inside during the winter. I have had them for about three years, but the roots are now overbearing the roots from the planters they are in. How do I take it out of the pot, I have read they are very temperamental or their roots are and I would not like to lose these palms. My wife would give me grief over it.. I tried to pull them out to see if they would wiggle lose but they did not. I am tempted to break the planters, only thing stopping me is it they costed me a pretty penny, so I'm trying not to. Can I cut the sides of the plant, like between the roots and the planter? Will the palm die if I do cut it, because if I have to, then my last resort would be to take the planter apart.
Pennsylvania, the center of America's economic, social, and political development. May God Bless This Nation!

@Keystone republican you sound like a great dude to have as a friend. I live in Philadelphia Pennsylvania I also have a Bismarck and have had it for three years also. Well you should know its very hard living here in Pennsylvania to keep Bismarck alive, but some how me and you where able to defeat such a brutal obstacle and climate. But I had the same problem with my Bismarck, what you have to do is get down inside your pot to the side of it and cut around to hit some roots. The roots is what is stopping it from coming out. Usually I just step on the side of my pot that the Bismarck is in so it would get lose. Your problem is you donít want to break the pot. If my method doesnít work your only alternative is for you to break the pot. We both know it will not survive the brutal Pennsylvania. What is better losing an expensive Bismarck and having your wife snap at you, or just purchasing a new pot? Well I hope I was of any help have a good day and good luck Pennsylvania buddy.

Red face Bismarck Palm Heavy Rooted

To answer your questions about the roots on a bismarck are large and tend to mold together forming in the shape of It's planter if not in the ground. its not a great idea to cut the roots on a bismarck palm because the roots do not like to be disrupted. So In the case that you have a Bismarck Palm in a Planter I would advise you to cut the planter not the roots on the bismarck or any palm is not necessary I love and cherish this palm and know a little bit about it. Try soaking the entire root ball and planter in water this should help loosen up the excess soil and quite possibly be your solution since you paid a pretty penny for the planter. And last I would also recommend getting a larger planter for this palm anyways because if the roots are out growing in the pot its probably time to get a newer and larger pot so the palm and breathe and flourish. adding a good soil mixture and some fertilizer for bismarck palms is a must for the overall health of your tree.
