Pruning Palm Trees

No matter what palm trees species it may be or where its grown like, palm trees in Florida, palm trees south Florida, California palm trees, Hawaii, Tahiti, it doesn’t matter where they are or what palm trees species they may be, they all need the same kind of tender loving care.


Remember some fronds can be gently pulled away and others may need to be cut.


The ones that are cut will later dry out and be easily pulled off for a cleaner and neater looking trunk for that pristine tropical garden look!


Out of all the palm trees species, the Sago palms are a beautiful type of palm tree but they are really high maintenance and you will have to do much more trimming each year than any other palm tree.


If you have tall Palms you will come across some challenges reaching the dead or dying fronds, you may have to hire someone but if they are reachable the best thing to do when they are completely dead is to pull them off.


Make sure when you are trimming fresh fronds do not cut them close to the trunk of the palm #1 it can cause the tree to die and #2 it can invite bugs and diseases to find their way into the tree making it sickly looking or it can actually cause it to die.


So when you do cut them when the fronds are still green cut about two inches from the trunk to help prevent any future complications with the growth of your tropical tree.
