Palm Tree Abuse

nb205 added on October 28, 2014 | Answered

Most of the palm trees we have on our grounds have grass growing around them. When the lawn crew uses a string trimmer, they are cutting into the base of the trees all the way around the base. Can this harm the tree?

Yes it certainly can. It's no big job for the lawncare people to put mulch around the base of the palms so that lawn trimming can be done without hitting the palm trunks, and you're within your rights to request that this be done.
