Freeze Damage - What to do?


Recommended Posts

My wife and I just bought a new house in New Orleans with two palm trees in the front yard. This is the first time I have ever owned palm trees. Unfortunately, one of the two palms started to lose a considerable amount of bark from around its trunk.

I did some research and the only thing I was able to find as to why this may be happening was freezing weather which would damage the palm and create oppurtunities for fungal and bacterial growth. I'm not sure if this is the case, but we had temperatures drop to as low as 20 degrees fahrenheit recently and a considerable amount of wind.

I sprayed each palm tree with "Bonide Liquid Copper Fungicide".


What's wrong with my palm and what can I do to help it out?

Thank you in advance.
