Lightning Strike Nearby

Recommended Posts


One of our 40 foot tall Royal Palms is growing near a street light.  About three weeks ago the light was hit by storm lightning, no longer worked and was replaced. Because of the closeness of the Royal Palm it also sustained some damage.  Because of the intensity of the heat, the fronds on the side closest to the light are now drooping and dying.  The new growth at the top appears to have been damaged as well.  Fronds on the other side are fine.  Is it possible that the Royal Palm will recover?  Would the application of any fertilizer help the tree?
