The Q&A Archives: The Sad Palm Tree

Question: So I rescued a very nice palm tree from the garbage, but not before it had been snowed on for two days. It looked fine but after I brought it inside all of its fronds dropped off and the branches are now drying out and curling up from the tips (despite adequate watering. What can I do for this sad palm tree? Is it just in shock or is it a lost cause?

Answer: I think it is just showing distress from being tossed out in the cold. With any luck at all it should recover and begin to grow healthy new fronds. I'd just give it a few weeks to adjust. Don't give up yet!
