With Queen palm trees is it better to leave on the old cut branches on to cover the trunk or to remove the dried ones to keep scorpions out of them?

It is better for your palm to leave the boots attached. They protect the trunk from sunburn and will eventually fall off on their own. Wood scorpions may hide in them if there is any moisture at all but unless you deliberately water the trunk of the tree, it will probably be too dry to attract scorpions. Best wishes with your queen palms.
