Is there anyone in Jacksonville who can diagnose tree health? I have two Sylvester palms planted about 6 months ago that continue to brown. The new frawns look good coming out the center, but they quickly brown as they get pushed out by new growth. If I cut out all the brown I would have a palm that looks like a rooster tail. I have fertilized, so I don't think that is the issue. I have searched the net but cant seem to find a "tree doctor" in north florida. If any one knows of someone good who can do house calls , I would appreciate it.

Any competant neighborhood garden store that sells trees should be able to help you, even send someone out to your place.

Or, these guys can also be of assiatance.... The Florida Urban Forestry Council: http://www.fufc.org/index.html

I cannot vouch for them but Tree Masters (Tree Service Jacksonville Removal Trimming Care & Planting Ponte Vedra FL Tree Masters Florida) is the first place I see on Google. Their site says they make house calls.

Also saw a couple other places - Bushor's Tree Surgeous (Welcome to Bushor's Tree Surgeons) and Van Pelts Tree Surgeons (904-207-7754).

I've never used any of them though!

Lethal yellowing?

Symptoms (http://www.palmtreesaver.com/index_files/Symptoms.htm - broken link)

Save your money if your tree has this. Cut it down and plant something that's resistant to the disease. Robyn

Actually it sounds more like this than lethal yellowing:

PP243/PP163: Texas Phoenix Palm Decline

But if it's either of these things - just get rid of the palm. People spent tons of money trying to save palms from lethal yellowing in Florida years ago. Big waste of money. Robyn

After spending too much time on the computer researching it, I think I have determined that it is a magnesium deficiency. The leaves turn brown on the edges leaving just green in the middle. I magnesiated the heck out of it and will see how it goes. Thanks for the suggestions.

If the magnesium supplement doesn't work, maybe ask the Garden Forum. Although members there live all over the place, someone may have an answer.
