Pruning a palm tree can also benefit the plant if you remove leaves that are blocking sunlight from reaching other parts of the tree or preventing water and nutrient flow through its system. Also, cutting back a palm tree will help it look tidier in your yard. Just be careful not to cut off too much at once. Also, avoid pruning your palm tree in the hot summer months as this can cause serious damage to leaves and stems. Read more at Cutters Edge Pro
How To Make The Cut
When it comes to the actual trimming process, you need to do it in the most destructive way. Where should you start? Is there a recommended procedure? What could be considered a risky way of trimming palm trees?
After cleaning your tools with rubbing alcohol, you should assess how to make your cuts to ensure no part of the tree will fall on you or anyone on your property.
The experts suggest starting with the lower fronds before moving upward (so your path is as clear as possible). ‘Then when you make your cuts, aim to make them about 2-3 inches away from the trunk itself,’ Jeremy says.
Melody adds that removing the dead fronds at the base of its trunk means they are easier to spot because they are browner than the green ones higher up the tree.’This will allow more light into its canopy and make it easier for new fronds to grow there,’ she says. Read more at Homes and Gardens
When To Make The Cut
Timing is really critical in many issues of life. The same goes for palm tree trimming. Even when you have the right technique, you should get the timing right. The following post expounds on this important consideration.
Many people assume that they should trim their palm fronds as soon as they being to turn brown or start to dry up. However, this could actually be a big mistake. To keep your palm in optimal health, it is extremely important to trim it before it starts to flower in the spring season. This ensures that your palm tree will recover with ease from the trimming process and grow new, healthy fronds.
If your palms have already begun to flower, you should wait until the next spring season to trim your browning fronds. Although brown fronds might be a sore sight for some property owners, keeping them attached to your palm will actually help to avoid causing any additional stress for your palms in the Florida heat.
