Heart of The Palm

The heart of this Mexican Fan Palm is not too far below where the fronds attach to the trunk. Looking at both of my palm trees, the area is a bit darker than the trunk below it. You could say that this is where the magic happens for this tree, directly in the heart. Tired of palm trees yet?

    • Thanks! Around June I’ll have the tree company remove several protruding dead fronds from long ago, they use a chainsaw to smooth the trunk. You’ve got to get up there and remove portions of the tree that have seeds galore that time of year, it’s not fun to deal with the assault of baby palm trees that try to sprout if you don’t do this! Mexican Fan Palms are classified as a nuisance tree in some states. 🌴
