Those palms took a big hit after the winter storm dropped temperatures into the single digits and held us below freezing for several days.
The landscape of San Antonio has turned green again. However, given the shock our landscapes took during the historic February freeze, it has taken some time. These palms had great success after the winter storm dropped temperatures to single digits and kept us below freezing for several days.
The palm trees in South Texas were also damaged inand Peterson says that survival depends on the species of palm. According to Peterson, Sabal minor, Sabal Mexicana, Sabal palmetto, and Washingtonia filifera are the best palm trees for San Antonio that can withstand freezing. He adds that the date palm is a great choice for feather palms in the Canary Islands.
Windmill palms are likely to survive as well. You will know they survived if there is green tissue on top. Give the palm some water, but be careful not to spill it over it. Other palm species did not do so well.
Mexican fan palms may have succumbed to the cold even south of San Antonio due to the historic nature of the storm. Sago palms technically a cycad have likely lost their fronds.
Peterson also wrote on his blog on Garden Style San Antonio that palm trees in sheltered, south-facing locations were the best protection during the storm. June 1st is a target date.
This means that high, mature palms that are extremely heavy may be removed. A crane and flatbed may be required to remove the palm.
