canary island date palm

These Canary Island date palms are showing severe yellowing or chlorosis on the lower fronds. Correct this problem with appropriate nutrition or other appropriate cultural practices before pruning. Removing these yellow lower fronds now could cause yellowing to progress up to the upper fronds and could kill the palm.
