Q.foxtail palms

Zone Bradenton, FL 34212 | Helen Howe added on November 19, 2015 | Answered

My foxtail palm’s branches are turning a pale yellow color all over the tree, not just the lower branches that would be falling off. What could be causing this and what is the cure?

Thank you, Helen Howe

You may need to have a certified Arborist or Palm expert inspect the palm for a diagnosis.
Your local County Extension office can help you find a qualified expert in your area.
