Why are all my palms dying?

Sarasota palm Ganoderma disease

Over-pruning, specifically when it comes to Areca palms, could be the culprit.

Many people believe that all the new growth on Areca palms should be trimmed away. Unfortunately, all these open cuts make Arecas an easy target for many palm diseases like the deadly Ganoderma butt rot pictured here.

Ganoderma is so contagious that it can easily be transferred to other palms through landscaping tools like pruning shears and, once a diseased palm is removed, you should wait at least 4 years before planting another palm in its place because the disease could be still present in the soil.

If you see the telltale conk of Ganoderma butt rot or you suspect that any of your palms have become infected with Ganoderma or any other disease, call Sarasota Arborist at 941-923-5051 before the problem spreads to healthy palms in your property.

Hi there! Your article about the aftermath of Hurricane Ian and its effects on trees was quite informative. I'm glad to see that Live Oaks fared well during the hurricane, thanks to their stable root zone and reduced wind drag. It's essential to have professionals assess any leaning trees or limbs after such events for safety purposes.

In Grapevine, TX, we have a fantastic tree service for such situations. I had to deal with some hazardous trees on my property, and the team at Grapevine Tree Removal did an excellent job ensuring that my property remained safe and visually appealing. If you ever find yourself in Grapevine, TX, and need assistance with tree care, don't hesitate to reach out to them. They're true professionals in their field!
