Re: Damage report from North Louisiana single digit winter
It's really not that bad, considering a lot of those palms aren't rated for Z8b. That being said, I feel for you Ryan. Nothing worse than losing large impressive palm trees.
My experience with some palms rated at higher zones, is they can look perfect until July then have spear pull. Happened to me with Parajubaea, Brahea edulus and armata, and Chamaerops humulis in 1990.
Also, Phoenix canariensis can dampen off over a couple of years trying to re-grow a new crown as it takes about three years.
Hope all of your palms get healthy and look great by the end of summer.
