CiprianS Posted March 31, 2021 Report Share Posted March 31, 2021 (edited) This is my first post here, I hope I am not posting in the wrong section. I live in the Houston area and two years ago I have started to plant palm trees after I cleaned the landscape of some other trees from my house. Now, after all of the work that I have done to redo my landscaping on my own, at least I see that my lawn is coming back to life. The palm trees, I have or perhaps I should say I had because I don't know how may are still alive, fourteen. I have already bought two small Pindo Palms that I keep outside in pots right now but they are slow or best case scenario medium growing. Also, I am looking for some Texas Sabal Palms that I can get but I don't know if I can transplant them since they are in ground and they have from one feet to about three in height and from what I read they are very hard to transplant. Now, please help me to assess my damage and tell me if I am wrong in my assessment. One Mexican Fan Palm that I think will survive. Another Mexican Fan Palm which I don't know if it will survive or not. Two Canary Island Date Palms which I don't know if they will survive or not, the center spears was very easy to remove 2-3 weeks after the freeze, I don't see any green inside any of them. Mediterranean Fan Palm, this one hasn't put almost any growth since I planted it two years ago, there is something that it does not like where it is planted, the center of it became a little burned these days, in rest there is almost no change compared to how it was before the freeze. These two Pygmy Date Palms, I think they are dead, it was very easy to remove their center spears to all of them very soon after the freeze. These two Sago Palms, I think they will survive, I have removed the frond to one of them, for the other one I did not since it did now fall and it still looked ok, except that it lost its green color. These three Sago Palms, one of them has some signs of rot in it and I think it is dead, the first one, the second one I think it is dead, too, I am hopeful about the third one.
