Most Common to Destin - Sabal Palm Tree - The Florida State Tree
Wrong: Using tree climbing spikes does not damage a palm.
Right: Palms should not be spiked when pruning. The spikes damage the palm’s trunk and provide entry points for diseases that could kill your palm.
Wrong: All drooping fronds should be removed.
Right: Dead or dying fronds should be removed. It is best to
leave healthy fronds when possible. If you must remove healthy
fronds, do not remove fronds that grow at a 45 degree angle or
greater from the horizontal. When pruning is finished, the palm fronds remaining should droop over enough to reach an imaginary horizontal plane, drawn from the growing point.
Wrong: Palm fronds must be shaved (peeled) immediately in order to have a complete pruning job.
Right: Do not shave freshly pruned frond bases. This can damage the trunk allowing diseases to attack your palm. Instead, limit shaving (peeling) to the old, dead frond bases. Cuts should be close to the trunk but not so close that the trunk is damaged or “nicked.”
Wrong: Palms fronds must be cut flush with the trunk.
Right: Palm fronds should be cut as close as possible to the trunk, but not so close that the trunk is damaged by the pruning, however, a large frond stub should not remain.
