Q.Void In Bismark Trunk

Zone 33626 | Anonymous added on September 20, 2021 | Answered

We had an issue with dark deformed fronds and had the bismark spiked About 8 months ago in order to try and save it. The New growth finally seemed right but the cut off frond ends started to come off easily from the trunk. It was then we noticed a void in the trunk. The void has very sharp, not tattered edges. Can it be saved or is it time to cut down because of the damage/injury? Please see attached photos. Thanks.
