Sago Palms

4507 Views 12 Replies 12 Participants Last post by  Atlantic Lawn
Anybody here familiar with pruning Sago Palms. I have a prop that just had some installed to replace ones that were stolen and the palms are hanging over into the sidewalk. I'm not sure if I can just trim the ends or should they be cut at the ball.

Thanks in advance for any help

When you prune all the fronds off, are even just leave a few, you can cause the trunck to taper in that spot. It will do that to any palms. You really shouldnt prune any fronds above horizontal. If you look at tall palms, you will see the tapering where ever it was pruned heavily.
