Smile Pindo Palm - Looks really sick....help!

I have a Pindo Palm near our pool that has really been struggling since last year. We live in Chandler, AZ (Phoenix) so have extremes in temperature . We had a gardner whom I requested NOT trim the Pindo sinced it was just getting a good start. He ignored ,me (is now no longer with us), and I hope we can salvage the tree. It has only two green branches/leaves.....the rest is nice and brown....and the core of the tree where the fronds come out is also nice and brown....my husband said that during the monsoons, the core of the tree seemed to be drowning in water. What can I do to save this once beautiful tree and any tips for properly pruning would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for any help any of you "green thumb gardners" out there can provide. Sincerely, Nancy

Default Well the pindo palm is very resilient compared to other type palms

It sounds like the new spears are coming out brown, this is not due to monsoon season, this is to either a magnesium deficiency or the roots being obstructed or detoured from receiving nutrients... If the pindo palm was throwing out spears that were dangling on its side then it would have maybe root rot, which is a condition of roots being submerged in water for long periods of time. Try to fertilize it with some good fertilizer, also using something heavy in nitrogen would work as well... even grass fertilizer can be used to treat the palm. Also get some fungicidal spray, like liquid copper fungicide and spray it in the heart of the palm where the new spears are coming out of. Its hard to really diagnose something with visually looking at it. If you get a chance post up some pictures of the palm and I think I might be able to help you out better. I am right around the corner in Phoenix, so I know our environment pretty well plus I do some landscaping here and there.

Question Palm trunk losing it's `wooden' leaf base.

We are new to Casa Grande, and bought a home with 2 beautiful, large palm trees that look like pictures we have seen of the Pineapple Palms. The home we bought was vacant for 9 months, and the palms were not watered. We have noticed that the wooden bases of leaves that have been trimmed off, are falling off a few at a time. We don't see this in other palms that are similar in look to our, and we are hoping that our palms are not dying. Any thoughts? Thank you.

i want to transplant a pigmy date palm from it's container because it is needing more space. Presently it is outside for 5 years on the patio partially exposed to the sun. If advised, i would like to move it into full sun this winter. Will this palm withstand the hot summer in phoenix az?

Default Our palms have been dramatically over pruned!!

Hi,
I'm from Glendale [Phoenix] and we had our mexican fan palm trees trimmed today, we had an agreement not to cut green leaves, but when I arrived, some of the trees were dramatically over pruned!!! They are pruned up beyond the horizontal and it exposes tender tissues!!! They look terrible.... Some of our neighbors had palms over pruned in the same way and after a month they still look very unhealthy!!!
I don't know much about large palm care, so I need any help: what can I do now? Is there any special plant food/fertiliser what makes leaves sprout? How can I prevent possible disease? Any way how to help them?

Thanks,
Marie

That's interesting..how often is your palm being cared for? I'd assume the climate there would be fine for this specific palm..only reason I ask
