Trim back dead palm leaves if winter winds destroy or damage the banana palm's foliage. Avoid pruning back the palm's functional trunk, as doing so eliminates the possibility of flowers and fruit from that stem.
Prune a banana palm's stem only after flowering and fruiting is completed. The stem will not flower or fruit again. After harvesting your bananas, use garden clippers to cut it to the ground, making way for new stalks.
