2 month after Texas freeze Sabal Palmetto spear pulled

Recommended Posts

Bad news related to my Sabal Palmetto:

Today, about 2 months after the Texas freeze, palmageddon,  I noticed some tiny flies around palm's crown. I spread old fronds stems wider and pulled on the spear harder... and here it happened: I  pulled the spear.

The spear was light brown in the middle and white soft at the bottom. 

I poured copper Python 27 solution with a little of neem oil and insecticide inside. 

The palm was healthy and thriving before the freeze... I don't know how much hope I should have. :badday:

Unfortunately, probably none. We have 3 massive ones (12-15' of a trunk alone), and I have been monitoring them closely since the freeze. I did the copper treatment / wrapped em / etc. They are not producing any spears, and are white and mushy inside the crown - and all the brown spears pulled out easy. I'm already making plans to replace them
