Don’t they look like shit? Fortunately, three days hence they will get a great pruning by a new company I found a couple weeks ago that was pruning my neighbours trees on a different street in my sub. See those white flowers? The bees just adore them, they also signal that the process of producing seeds is just about complete.
You definitely want those stalks cut off before they go to seed, otherwise, you’ll be pulling up baby palm trees for weeks! Both Sago Palms are doing dandy since I gave them a proper pruning a couple months ago. These trees grow super slow so be patient.
I pruned that baby Mediterranean Fan Palm this morning too, it was getting a bit shaggy. It probably shouldn’t be there next to the fence, or wall. Fences down here are frequently just cinderblock walls. And I hope the many birds around here don’t poop on my umbrella!
