Could you share with us the theory behind this? A lot of new business owners probably don't understand this concept.

Default Sago Trimming

Down here in Texas we had a hard winter. Most of the sago Palm leaves are brown. I have seen some that have cut them back all the way while others are doing nothing. The three I have in my yard have just a little bit of green at the start of the stem but brown on 95% of the rest.

Do you trim them all the way off or what?

Thank you for your help.

From what I've read on it, when trimming, you should cut as close to the trunk as possible. This will encourage new leaves to emerge also.

Thank you Steve. Got to take care of one of my customers and wanted to make sure.

When you make a post, scroll below the area where you type your text and click on the grey button that says 'manage attachments.' That will allow you to attach photos. If you get a database problem when trying to do this, it's usually because the picture file size is too large and the picture needs to be made smaller. Try it out.

Can you trim palm leaves at any time of the year? I have a customer that has them over the walk way and they would like two of them cut back so they can get to the back porch.
