    We have 5 Fan Palms about 10 years old in coastal California. Someone is stealing the new middle frond at night. Will this kill the trees? Any suggestions for deterring this?

    I have a Triangle Palm. I live in Kentucky. How should I care for it this winter? Do I treat it like a banana tree? Should I cut the leaves off? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    good morning. I have a question about my canary date palm tree.I live in Florida and bought a home that was vacant for many years. The pineapple palm tree, as I like to call it had been neglected for quite some time. Lately I have pruned it up and made it look very nice and it is doing well and looks very good. However, the palm tree does not seem to be growing upward. There is only about 2 feet of trunk before you can see where all of the other branches have been cut off. This is fine and it gives the appearance that I want however like I mentioned before it is not growing upward. the branches are continuing to grow because they continue to get near the ground and I have to cut them to keep it looking tidy. But now I’m getting towards the top of the crown and the tree still won’t grow up any. Any thoughts or suggestions?

    Have learned much from your website over the years and have many different kinds of palms, some that are not supposed to do well in my zone, however I have never found out why my Bottle palms new fronds quickly brown and shrivel up before they even are fully developed. Neither tree has grown much since planted 3 yrs ago..I am afraid to ‘treat’ them with anything for fear of making the condition even worse. They weather the cold of our area fine but they do not grow, I’m perplexed as to what is wrong.

    My Mother is convinced her tall Palm Trees are dieing just because they are diseased or old, …. I told her it is because they are getting too much water, too frequently every day (because of the Florida Rainy Season starting early). Her one tall Palm has only two new shoots left on top of it. I told her told her to let it be and it will recover when the heavy long rains slow down.
    She also has a company that cuts like 80 percent of the leaves off of those palm trees during the early summer, which can’t be healthy to those palms.

    Your info in the artical was very helpful :]

    if i plant a mature royal palm and then cut off the head, will it die? i want it to be used by my wild macaws as a nest. therefore, the head has to come off. is this possible for me to do, in a sense i am trying to make a big bird house for macaws>

    thanks
