can part of palm tree mound be removed without destabilizing remaining trunks?
I have mature palms (Queens, I think) that have grown multiple trunks in a mound. The palms are next to a fence and three trunks were previously cut down because they were pushing the fence out. Now it is time to replace the fence and remaining stumps/mound are in the way. Can I cut this portion of the mound flush with the ground without risking the remaining trunks falling? or will entire mound and palms have to be removed? tallest trunk is approx. 50' tall.
