Prune when the tree is dormant. Right before buds start to develop.You will need a pair of pruners, loppers, and maybe a saw. Cut anytwigs, or branches that cross into each other. You want to try andcut any growing far downward to maintain an upright shape. All cutsyou make should be cut at an angle…. Or you can hire someone to doit for you. Answer DO NOT PRUNE WHEN DORMaNT! it is a common misconception made mostly 'cos farmers cut trees inwinter but they do that not because its the best time for it butbecause they don't have enough time to prune in summer. best timesto prune would be early spring and after you picked the fruit.early spring pruning is mostly for tree shape design like the styledescribed by the former answer while after picking pruning is meantto remove suckers and open the tree for sunlight which will improvethe differentiation to fruit next year. pruning while dormant hurts the tree more, causes slow healing,increases susceptibility to disease and can increase the chances ofmortality by up to 30% (MORE)
No. A palm is a monocot (family monocotyledoneae), which is related to corn, grass, bamboo, agave, irises, yucca, etc. They do not develop rings year to year, and their stems are dramatically different from tree trunks. They do not add bulk to their trunks year to year at all, and their water tran…sportation system is clusters of phloem and zylem packed in a pithy fibrous sheath. *** Palms are neither a softwood (Gymnosperm) nor a hardwood (Angiosperm). Palms are members of the Arcaceae family of flowering plants. They have been termed "the princes of the vegetable kingdom." Of course, due to their enormous size, palms are commonly referred to as 'trees.' If one falls on your car, you're not going to tell the insurance agent that the damage was caused by a flowering plant. So, while you and I might call them trees, Palms are not scientifically classified as such. This is similar to asking: Is that animal really a 'dog' or a 'chien' or a 'perro'. It all depends on whether you speak English or French or Spanish. The animal is not really anything all by itself. Likewise, a palm 'tree' is not really anything, but only what people say it is. The billions of people on the earth today and all who lived before them, have created a word 'tree' which includes palm trees. This is the classic dictionary definition. Although the word is different in each language, the concept, the idea of what a 'tree' is, remains the same. Perennial woody plants having a main trunk, thick bark and distinct crown are trees. In this definition of trees the palms do not have woody trunk, therefore, these are not trees in strict sense. In very recent times, a small number of people have been devoting themselves to the study of plants. To help them organize their field, they borrow some of our words and give them new meanings. Within the field of Botany, our word 'tree' is now a technical term which does not include palms. Instead, palms --that don't have wood-- are categorized into the "manicot" class of flowering plants (along with orchids, tulips, onions, sugarcane, bamboo, wheat, and crabgrass). - So, by botanical definition, a palm tree is not a tree . - For the billions of non-botanists on the planet, and most of their dictionaries, a palm tree is a tree. If two different groups use two different definitions, then there are two correct answers. But neither is what it ' really ' is because it isn't ' really ' anything! . Information which can be found in some relevant books: According to An encyclopedia of cultivated palms / Robert Lee Riffle and Paul Craft (Portland OR / Cambridge: Timber Press, 2003. ISBN 0881925586) "palms are among the few monocot families with woody tissues". Palms "may be shrublike, treelike or vinelike". "As monocots, palms do not increase their trunk size by growing new wood. Rather, if the trunk enlarges, it does so by expanding the tissues first formed". Palms are referred to as trees in the following: Oxford dictionary of plant sciences/ edited by Michael Allaby (Oxford): Oxford University Press, 2004.

Generally, trimming a eucalypt is only done to young trees to shape them. In that case, you would trim to an outward facing side shoot. Lower branches can also be removed. In older trees, pruning should only be done if necessary, and branches removed flush with the trunk. Some species can be rejuven…ated completely by coppicing, or cutting right down to a stump. Only species with a lignotuber will regrow, so check first. (MORE)
Answer . For the trunk use a chainsaw if itÂ´s a Royal palm or similar. Nikki

All trees are plants, but the palm "tree" isn't considered a tree. It is a very large, tall plant.
I am pretty sure they are trees.... SECOND ANSWER: There seems to be some disagreement whether palm trees should be called trees at all (having no branches but only trunks, leaf stems and leaves) although they often do reach enormous heights as far as plants go. Nevertheless they surely are not f…erns (which reproduce via spores) but flowering plants. *** Palms are neither a softwood (Gymnosperm) nor a hardwood (Angiosperm). Palms are members of the Arcaceae family of flowering plants. They have been termed "the princes of the vegetable kingdom." Of course, due to their enormous size, palms are commonly referred to as 'trees.'

Most trees are better grown naturally but if it is planted in a position where pruning becomes necessary then the lime is able to stand pruning better than most.
In 99% of cases you cannot trim the height of a palm tree withoutkilling it. Palms are moncotyledonous, this means they have onegrowth point or apical bud; this is located in the centre of thefronds and produces the new fronds. If this is damaged the plantcannot grow any more and will eventually die…. You do however also get "clump-forming" plams, in this case thetaller plants can be removed and the smaller ones left to grow upand replace the ones removed (MORE)
Landscaper accidentally cut off top of palm tree and then trimmed it back with a chainsaw on the trunk Will it come back to life or will it die?
Answer 1: There's nothing to be done. The remaining frondswill eventually turn brown, and the whole plant will die. EvenBuddha in the Vinaya knew that if you cut off the top of the palmtree, it will not grow back from the roots. Answer 2: It depends on which type of palm it is. Some can regenera…te from the root ball or base of the trunk. Leaveit until the following summer and get a different landscaper. (MORE)

They are most prevalent in tropical regions. Some species of palm tree have managed to survive as far north as Canada, but not without special care. They are native to the tropics and subtropics. Whether they are actually a tree or not depends on which definition of "tree" you subscribe. It is… most often defined as a woody plant that has many secondary branches supported clear of the ground on a single main stem. A minimum height specification at maturity is cited by some authors, varying from 3 m to 6 m; some authors set a minimum of 10 cm trunk diameter (30 cm girth). Palm trees are considered "trees" by this definition, but they are not scientifically classified as such. Trees, shrubs, and vines all have one thing that separates them from the rest of the plant world: a woody stem that is perennial or that lives for many years. Grasses, palms, ferns, and even some cacti (see the saguaro) may be big and perennial, but are not made of wood and their tops are regrown year after year. Notice that by this taxonomic exception, the Joshua "tree" also fails to make the cut. Some palms and ferns grow very tall, and they do have a hard, wood-like, vertical stem, but their method of growth precludes them from being classified as trees. They are informally referred to as trees, but belong to different taxonomic family. (MORE)

I believe it means "to Decorate the Christmas Tree." Trimming the tree comes from the days when everyone harvested their own tree. No tree was ever the perfectly cultured trees we have today, nor were they selected from "farms" by professionals, they were collected by each family as part of their ce…lebrations. The "imperfections" of the tree (such as odd, or extra long branches that may tip the tree) were trimmed off to make the tree more stable and pretty. This was usually done just before the lights, and ornaments went up, thus we still talk of trimming the tree as making it look pretty. (MORE)
