Christmas Tree Palm

Zone Wimauma, FL | Anonymous added on August 29, 2018 | Answered

My Christmas Tree Palm has three trunks. Two of the trunks are healthy and one is not doing well. It had a single green shoot but strong winds broke it off. It looks dead at the top of the trunk. Does it need pruning to stimulate new growth?

From the photo it doesn't look good. If it's been over a month or two and there is no new green growth appearing at the top, then that stem is likely dead.
If it was a recent event, water and fertilize and give it a month or two.
