The Q&A Archives: Trimming Phoenix Palms

Question: When should Phoenix palms be trimmed and how much? Also the same for Queen palms?

Answer: Generally, the only trimming a palm tree needs is to remove dead fronds. Some gardeners allow the dead fronds to hang on the trees and others like to remove them. You can remove dead fronds at any time of the year without compromising the health of either of your palm trees.
