Q.Sago Palm

Anonymous added on March 27, 2014 | Answered

We just moved into a new home and one of the sago palms in the front is leaning. It is about 5 ft tall. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

Not at that size. You can correct leaning in trees and palms when they are young, but by the time they get to that size, they are set in the ground by their root systems. The only way to correct it is to dig it up and replant it. But, at that size, the palm is much more susceptible to transplant shock and has a greater chance of dying.
