The Q&A Archives: palm tree

Question: I recently planted a palm in my front yard and it is turning brown and looks as though it is going to die. How can I save this tree?

Answer: Newly planted trees and shrubs can sometimes go through some transplant shock which shows up in wilting or dying leaves or fronds. Your plant may just be going through a little stress and will probably overcome the problem and grow new fronds. Be sure to water your palm deeply once each week if rainfall is less than one inch per week.

Best wishes with your palm!
