Dying Palm Limbs

Do you have any palm trees?  Ever wondered what to do with the dead limbs?  They actually need to be trimmed off but how you do it is important.  With most palms like this one you can see that the old limbs make up the look of the truck.  You need to be careful with how close you trim them to the trunk of the palm in order to keep the look the same.  Be Careful though because most palms are full of thorns and will cause pretty deep cuts.  All you need is a good set of loopers and just make a clean cut.  Dead limbs are a natural and normal part of the plant’s life cycle so there is no need to be concerned!
