Palm Trees increasingly have a greater role within the coastal zone Landscapes. There are about 2000 different species, which vary according to the shape of its branches, trunk and habitat.
No need to prune pal trees so often, quite the opposite, with it done once a year is enough. Prune them too much can weaken its growth.
Usually every living thing responds to a cycle, as the palm trees do. They have a system of regulation which generate new leaves at the top of his cup as the old leaves are drying in the lower area.
To Not affect their development, spring, summer and fall are the conducive seasons for your pruning.
Things to consider while pruning Palm trees:
They should be pruned when the leaves begin to yellow, when they are dry.
Remove diseased leaves attacked by fungi or other parasite, preventing spores spread to healthy leaves.
Fruit clusters of palm trees consume energy, restringing it for the leaves. If we remove the them, water and nutrients will reach the rest of the palm with greater force and vigor leaving it fully grow.
Remove dry branches to increase visibility and prevent that possible dry branches could fall on people or buildings damaging them.
Green leaves should not be pruned, the balance of the palm tree could break, weakening and delaying its development and causing a loss in nutrient uptake.
