Queen Palm Question

Anonymous added on November 4, 2014 | Answered

I have a Queen palm whose trunk snapped about 3 feet above ground level during a wind storm. Prior to the storm, the tree was relatively healthy, although it had a weak area in the trunk (at the location it broke) due to an overly tight support system - which I recently removed. My question is, is there any chance this tree will continue to thrive and grow new fronds (albeit at a lower level) or is this tree toast? Thanks in advance for your help.

The tree is toast. Palms grow only from a central growing point located at the top of the trunk, in the center of the rosette of leaves.
