Palms – Cold Damage

Q: At my home there already existed around my pool two well-established palms. They looked fine *last* spring, but so far this year all the limbs are slanted down completely, and brown. Obviously we had a cold winter. Is there anything I should try and do?

A: You can have hope if you see green growth at the top of both trees.

You can cut off brown fronds but wait until early summer to decide the plant is dead.
