Palm Tree Haircuts

Originally uploaded by dewelch
While I have many cleanup tasks in my garden, I am so glad I don't have to deal with this regular Palm Tree cleanup. As it is, people make it more difficult on themselves, as I often do, by postponing the process for years.

I have heard is said that trimming off the dead fronds of the tree prevents them from falling off in a wind storm (which does happen) and also keeps out the rats that like to live there. (This one I have not confirmed.

I always think the trees look a little silly after a dramatic haircut, though.
