Foxtail Palm Trunk Problem

Zone Titusville, Florida. 32780 | Anonymous added on October 4, 2018 | Answered

What would cause a foxtail palm tree trunk to develop a circumferential tear right above ground level? The tear has widened and caved in where it first started. Two fronds are yellowed and will drop soon. The palm was planted one year ago and another tree planted at the same time is doing well. Is there anything we can do to save this palm?

This appears to be no cause for concern, but if you are still concerned that the soil may be infected, then you can use some wettable sulfur around the tree to help.
