If I cut the top off of a coconut palm will the tree die?
This is in western Mexico, the palm is 25-30 feet tall. The fronds are ugly when they turn brown and take 6 -12 months to fall off. In the meantime ripe cocnuts are falling down. One hit my forearm once, lucky I didn't get a broken arm. I'm afraid for our safety as well as my kitty cats! If a coconut falls 20 plus feet down, he could be killed. The tree does provide some shade but I'd rather be safe! The tree is smack in the middle of our walled in courtyard
