Q.Canary Island Palm Trunk

Zone Houston, Texas 77017 | Anonymous added on July 24, 2021 | Answered

I have a palm that is about 8– feet tall and about 20″ in diameter. On the bottom half of the trunk, the cut pieces of the branches are falling off, appearing to be rotten. I have talked to a local nursery, which didn”t know much about this tree, and they said that there might be a bug infestation. I treated the ground with a drench. The trunk is solid, I checked with a screwdriver. Is this normal? Can I strip off the remaining cut pieces and debris from the bottom half?
