Berry sacks

Asked October 23, 2016, 11:48 AM EDT

My Palm tree has sacks of red berries which appear dried out and dying. Should I cut them off or leave them alone.

Great question - either - it is your preference. If the berries are dropping on an area and causing a mess, you can remove them. Some birds feed on the berries (depending on the palm species) and leaving them could be food. Take care.
