Q.Can I Remove The Branches That Have Berries On My Tall Palm Trees?

Zone 92058 | ramead37 added on October 7, 2020 | Answered

My very tall palm trees have different kinds of branches, below the palm fronds, which bear berries. These berries are a nuisance as they drop all over and can be dangerous to walk on. Can I remove these berry-bearing branches without harming the trees?

Yes. Remove them before they bear fruit to avoid the slippery mess they make! It will not harm them at all!

Just be sure to use clean shears to avoid infection.
