Living in a beach condominium with palm trees abundant, we are having a big problem with palm tree shoots growing up inside our indian hawthorne. It is a constant battle trimming the shoots. Do you have any problem solving ideas? Our Manager wants to just pull up the Hawthornes and replace with something else. I am wondering if "whatever" is replaced would do the same thing. Your expertise would be greatly appreciated. Thank you...Mary Meador

This is unfortunate. Anything you plant there will suffer the same fate. The only real way to deal with this will be to pull them up or continue cutting them as you see them. Unless you can get rid of the palms, the problem will still persist.
