The Q&A Archives: Queen Palmsn - should they be cut down? Or should be replaced?

Question: We have three 4 yr old Queen Palms in a 2 story screen enclosure that are touching the tops and sides of the screen - should they be cut down? Or should be replaced? We just bought our home last year. We are worried about strong winds that the branches would tear the screens.

Answer: Deborah,

If you cut them back they will not resprout. Your options are to take them out or to move them to another location on the property (which may be difficult since they are in an enclosure. A landscaper could provide advice or a bid on moving or removing them.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
