You can cut wisteria vines to get rid of the problem vines; however, the roots remain active and beneath the soil. Woody stumps that remain after cutting the vines continue to produce new vines, but you can apply herbicide to kill the wisteria stumps and prevent new growth.

Can I burn wisteria?

If it was coal made from fossilised wisteria there might be an academic argument for not burning it. It's not, so there isn't. If you have the time you could always cut up the trimmings into small pieces and use them as a mulch. Do NOT compost wisteria or chop it up and use it for mulch.
