Can I take off the bottom 8 to 10″ of leaves on the Cardboard Palm?
I have 3 Cardboard Palms that I would like to trim up and can't find any information on how to do it. I would like to clear the bottom 10" of branches to leave a view under them. Is that possible and how can I proceed? These plants are 13 years in our yard and is 5 to 6' tall Thank you for any information.

I don't recommend doing this, but it won't hurt to do it VERY SLOWLY. Take off a branch of leaf per day, or maybe a few days in between. It is just more of a hassle, and potential threat to the health of the plant for very little gain.
