The time has come to address proper support for Palm trees when transplanted.
Back in the mid 1990’s I had an Idea to create a system of securing palm trees when they are first transplanted, that would not interfere with the structural integrity of the tree itself. As it is palms are monocots with a somewhat woody stem and they do not have the capacity to heal over wounds in their trunk or stem as dicots do. When the trunk or stem of a palm is punctured or wounded by a nail or spike, it is a Permanent wound, it cannot heal. The system I created and patented (US #6389743B1), is secure when it comes to protecting the health and integrity of the tree in an esthetically pleasing manor.
