Palm pruning

Only the dead brown fronds in the lower part of the canopy and the dead flower stalks in the center of the canopy need to be removed from this healthy cabbage palm. Be careful not to nick the petiole bases of the fronds that remain when cutting flower stalks. If you do, they are likely to break in half in the near future.
