Thank you to the palm pruning committee!

Thank you to the Lakeside Condo homeowners who served on the palm pruning committee last spring. This September, our palms were pruned correctly!

Excerpts from " Facts and issues regarding cabbage palms and their pruning" by Geoff Norris:

• Palms are highly unique in their structure, and quite unlike both the hardwood trees and softwood trees that are more familiar to most of us coming from the north temperate zones. In the case of cabbage palms (the state tree of Florida), their fronds originate one at a time at a single growth point at the apex of the trunk near the centre of the crown (unlike deciduous and evergreen trees which produce leaves at dozens, hundreds, or thousands of different points on the branches).

• The palm fronds increase in size during their growth and development, and gradually droop down from an initial almost vertical position to a horizontal and then a dangling position.

• Without any pruning, the crown of fronds so produced is spherical or sub-spherical in shape, tending to be greener at the top and a mixture of green and brown below.

• During maturation of the crown, each frond goes through an active stage of growth and photosynthesis. Later as each frond droops down it loses its green colour and turns various shades of yellow and brown. This is a natural process and marks the start of highly important and crucial nutrient transfer from the frond to other parts of the palm tree, such as the trunk, which is essential for the continued good health of the palm.

• If a green palm frond is removed, this is potentially catastrophic for the palm tree because its continued growth and strengthening of the trunk is badly compromised by the loss of the nutrient that has not yet been transferred from the green frond. The nutrients needed to sustain the trunk are cut off when the frond is pruned, and the trunk cannot therefore continue to increase in size.

• Pruning of green cabbage palm fronds has been established as the cause of "penciling" of the trunks (a sharp bottlenecking of the trunk beneath the crown). In turn, this penciling weakens the trunk which otherwise is highly resistant to wind damage.

None of the above points regarding palm tree physiology and anatomy is in anyway contentious with botanists and arborists in the State of Florida. In fact, some Florida counties are so alarmed at the destructiveness of "hurricane cut" cabbage palm pruning that they have banned its use.
