Default Prune! only when Leaves are Dying!

Or falling off, or turning really brown, or if you want to treat your palm tree and want the ones that are infected gone. Palm trees enjoy there leaves being trimmed but only when the time is right!

Default Pruning advice was good.

That is some basic good news about trimming palm tree branches. When you do prune your palm tree make sure not to damage the trunk. That could lead to infections.

Default another good pruning tip is to

prune the palm leaf when it is sagging vertically aligned with the palm truck. This is also a great time to prune the leaves. You may also prune the ends of the leaves if they are browning. This will not effect the palm tree.

I love palm trees I have 2 metallica palms they are indoors most of the year. I heard from some one some where so does that really work, I want to trim mine but the leaves are not dry but a few are brown. I guess Im gonna wait unless theres something else i need to know I guess I just answered my own silly question.
