How To Trim A Queen Palm Tree
The queen palm tree can grow up to 50-feet tall. This feather palm tends to thrive in acidic, well-draining soils in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 9b-11. Queen palms can spread up to 25-feet outward, with fronds growing atop the trunk. These trees will drop fonds naturally, but only pruning can produce immediate results.
- Check the base of the leaf stem before attempting to remove the frond.
- If the base appears green, then it is not dead.
- Refrain from removing said frond while it is still alive.
- Only perform any pruning between the months of September and November.
- Do not prune too many fronds at one time, as this ultimately stresses the tree.
- Cut the dead fronds a few inches from the trunk with a saw.
- Do not cut into the trunk.
- Only remove any leaves that drop at less than a 90-degree angle from the trunk.
