|The center leaves of the date palm was brown and fell out so a hole is at the top of the palm tree. Is it dead?|Answer from NGA

If the top or terminal bud is dead or gone the tree will die. The leaves around the top may stay green for a while but the tree cannot put on new growth.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
