My palm tree leaves are browning

My palm tree leaves are browning and very slow in growth. Please help! Leaves look like they're burning up and turning brown, even the young ones. Some leaves have brownish spots. Barely a leaf in the past three months!

This could be watering issues, insects or fungus.

Inspect your plants for any signs of insect damage.

Treat the Palm with Neem Oil, this works as both an insecticide and fungicide.
