PALM TREE TRIM & SKIN
No matter what type of palms you may have, June is a great time to trim and skin them. For species such as date palms and other fruit bearing palms, summer months, when they are flowering and fruiting, is when the debris is at its heaviest. Trimming fruit-heavy fronds as well as any dry, dead fronds will eliminate the risk of this debris falling and causing injury or property damage. Removing expired fronds will also reduce the presence of pests such as rodents and scorpions making their homes in the shelter these dead limbs provide. Skinning can help with pest problems as well, in addition to giving your palms a manicured, resort look.
