Is there a way to 'stunt' the growth of Manila Palm trees. I do not want them to exceed twelve feet in height.

Thank you.

There's really no way to prune a palm to keep it small. The growth takes place in the top center of the palm. If you cut it off, the plant will die. Wish I had better news for you!
