ENJOY THE BEAUTY OF YOUR PALMS WITH NO STRINGS ATTACHED.

Q: I’m no tree expert, but I just had two palms installed, and the twine around the fronds was removed right away. Shouldn’t it be left on until the palms are established?
A:  You may be confusing twine-wrapping for wood braces that are positioned against the trunks to stabilize palms. Wood braces typically stay on for several months until a palm is established.

The twine around the leaves of a palm should stay on while the tree’s being transported, then removed immediately after it’s properly installed. Some people think twine should stay on a transplanted palm until it naturally breaks, or for six weeks after planting, or even for the entire first year.

Your landscape company did the right thing, so you have nothing to worry about. You can start enjoying the full beauty of your palms now “no strings attached.”
