I think this is a king palm (not 100% sure). Here are some photos I just
took today to show a possible problem. Up until today I thought this was
normal, but when I push on the tree, it sway very easily and I can see the
trunk move at the ground. Nothing appears wet or eaten by insects -
everything I can see and touch is hard like a normal tree.
Anyway, anyone who can share some info about this tree - is this normal or
not, etc - would be very much appreciated.
If you send me an email, please post to this newsgroup also as I do not
check this account daily.
Thanks in advance!
Good pictures! Was the tree always smaller in diameter at the bottom that
way? That does NOT look good. And, based on the symptoms, I don't know if
I'd park a car near it in windy weather.
You might want to call your local cooperative extension office ASAP, and
send or bring them these pictures.
