Q.Can I Remove 1 Trunk From A 3 Trunk Palm Tree Without Killing It?

Zone Aliso Viejo CA, 92656 | Sm4q9rt5 added on March 25, 2021 | Answered

I have four of what I believe are Robellini palm trees. Each one has a root ball with 3 trunks. They are approximately 8 years old and they have grown up to 12 feet tall. They now obscure the whole front of the house. I would like to remove the forward most trunk from each tree to make the house more visible. Is this possible without killing the trees? I have attached pictures of a couple of the trees to confirm species.

Yes, this will not harm the palm. !/3 of the tree is what you can expect to take, safely.
