I have just taken the Palm out of a pot and the roots, unwound are twice as long as the plant, I do t want to put it in the ground,  but into a bigger pot can I trim them?

Photos needed. I'm not sure about Chamaerops but pruning roots on any palm is not a good idea. Many palms are root sensitive and can die if their roots are damaged. If you are putting it in a bigger pot anyway better to tuck the roots into the pot rather than cut them.
