How do you transplant sago palms trees? Our beautiful trees are having babies on the side of them, and we would love to remove them without worrying they may die.

Sago palms often produce little babies. These offsets will develop visible roots. When you see several roots coming from the offset you can gently twist and pull the offset from the parent plant, then pot it up in potting soil. The offset will continue to develop more roots, then begin to grow. At this point you can transplant it into the ground. The offsets are fairly tough little guys and if you're careful not to pinch it too hard or pull too many roots off, they should survive the separation process and grow into attractive new sago palms.
