Queen Palm knocked down by windstorm
I have a Queen Palm. It was 12' tall when planted 8 years ago. There were strong winds 2 years later that left it tilted, I propped it up for 6 months and its been fine since. Now it is 10' to the area where the branches start and a major windstorm yesterday snapped it off at ground level. There are a few 6-12" roots left on the trunk. Can this tree be re-planted? I hate to lose 8 years of growth and it was a beautiful tree.

That is very unfortunate. This tree is badly damaged, and its odd for survival are slim. If it does survive, it will likely be knocked over several more times. This damage will likely kill the tree. I am sorry to bring such bad news.
