The Q&A Archives: I have a palm tree with ferns growing on it.

Question: Should the ferns be removed, and if so, how do I safely remove them without harming the palm tree?

Answer: William,

You can leave them if you like. The are not parasites but rather just growing on the tree. They can be physically removed but it may be a tedious task trying to get all the plant parts out and they will probably be back in time.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
