Will Your Palm Tree Die If You Cut The Top Off?
Put simply, yes, the palm tree will die if the top is cut off. When you trim a different type of tree, such as apple, pine, or oak, the dominant buds growing on the branches will sprout even better. This is not the case with palm trees. Once the top is cut off, new green fronds cannot form and the tree will die.
The foliage component of the plant is needed for photosynthesis. This means when you cut the palm’s top off, this process cannot take place. The palm will no longer be able to produce its own food or storage. Gradually, the palm tree will die.
