- How should I trim my palm fronds?
You should only trim palm fronds that have turned completely brown. If the inner part of the frond is still green but the tip still has damage, only remove the tip of the frond. To put the palm's effort into growing, rather than flowering, prune the spear before it begins to flower. If you prefer the look of the flowering palm, allow the spear to blossom and fruit.
