Caring for Palm Trees 

Healthy palm trees should have a green canopy full of bright, shiny leaves. Palm trees experience their most rapid growth in the summer months from May to August, and they need plenty of water during these months. As the tree grows, new fronds grow, and old ones die and turn brown. Palm trees should be trimmed at least once a year, and regular maintenance will help enhance the overall appearance of the tree. 

Palm tree maintenance should include removing: 

  • Old palm fronds 
  • Old and new seed pods 
  • Loose boots 

While regular palm tree maintenance will help improve the appearance of your trees, too much trimming or removing too many fronds can harm the tree. A tree with a skirt of dead fronds should not be removed in the summer months. They provide protection from the sun. The same is true for the green canopy. Removing too many fronds at the top of the tree takes away the much-needed sun protection. The bark of the tree can actually be burned by the sun’s rays in the summer. 

In addition to not taking too many fronds, only those that are fully brown should be removed. Overzealous and inexperienced tree trimmers may have the urge to remove all fronds that have brown on them — this is a mistake. If the fronds have some green, they are beneficial for the tree and should not be removed. 

Your palm trees are an investment, and improper care can harm the tree. For this reason, palm tree maintenance should be handled by properly trained and equipped professionals. An experienced crew with the right equipment can quickly and safely perform palm tree maintenance without causing damage to your property or the trees. If there is a problem with the health or stability of the tree, a certified arborist can provide guidance about proper tree care.
