So this royal is pretty thin for its size and I want a fat royal in my yard I've seen other royals this hight and size have a much wider base and stem this one is thin and spindley. I would like to change that and make it as fat as possible before it starts trunking in a year or 2 because once that happens you can't change the thickness of the trunk.
After all that palms ( most notably the extra tropical ones ) have been though this year, you would think they might get a break, but no the abuse doesn’t stop ! The hotel that homes two of the tallest royals in Texas had a trimming job done on there palms (even though it was completely unnecessary) the one Royal on the right looks especially bad.
I believe more likely than not they will bounce back (again) however it is December so it’s more risky.
Hello all! So I planted my royal last year and at the time I thought it would have enough space. Currently the trunk is about 6 ft away from my home and 9 ft away from the neighbors. I also have two Mexican fans growing about 3 ft behind the brick wall.. My question is, will I run into any issues with the fronds dropping and will the mexican fans move away from the royal if the fronds get larger?

At minute 13:43 there appears to be the fallen fronds of a royal palm. I saw nothing like that throughout the gentleman’s walk through the swamp until that point. Does anyone have any idea where this might be?
