Landscape Tip of the Month
by Lisa Ortega,
City of Henderson Urban Forester
It seems like this year’s
cooler weather has many people out in their yards working on their
landscape. Unlike many other trees, palms love the hot weather and now is
the time to prune and fertilize them. Cut fronds from palms when they have
turned brown and are hanging down; avoid excessive pruning of the green
fronds. Remember, these green fronds are generating the chlorophyll needed
to feed the palms and removing them takes away needed food. Also, if you are
not going to harvest and eat dates provided by the date palms, remove them
at the same time. The production of seed takes quite a bit of energy for the
palm - if they are not needed, a nice trim will keep a healthy, vigorous
taper on the trunk.
As for other trees, many of them do not like to be pruned in the summer.
Summer temperatures can stress trees and pruning can add to the stress. Be
particularly careful on the south and west sides of trees and take care not
to open up the inside of the tree or a new trunk to full sun. The full
exposure, especially next to hardscapes, can lead to sunscald and cracking
of the trunk.
This is the time of year to look for dead branches (since they have no
leaves) and prune out what you know is dead. If you can, save the rest of
your pruning for cooler temperatures this fall!
