Q.Foxtail Palms Seed branches

Zone Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia | Anonymous added on December 6, 2018 | Answered

We have 2 mature Foxtail Palms in our garden on The Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia and each has produced 2 seed pods that have now produced 2 large branches that carried the seeds ( now gone). Is it possible to prune these seed branches off the trunk or will they self clean like the fronds do?

Eventually, these will clean themselves, but there will be no harm in removing them yourself at any time you wish.

Here is an article on the care of these palms: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/foxtail-palm/foxtail-palm-tree.htm
