Coconut Palms turning yellow!

devra(Hawaii 11)October 19, 2004

I have 6 trees, 20-30 feet tall. They were transplanted almost two years ago onto my beachfront lot, from another beachfront lot a few miles down the road. They seemed to be recovering nicely, but now the fronds are turning more yellow every day, and they aren't making new ones.

Does anyone have experience with transplanted coconut palms? Is there anything I can do to save them?

Maybe add a little nitrogen to the soil? If they've survived there for two years, it isn't transplant shock. They may have depleted the nutrients in the soil and need more food? Put some compost around the base and let it soak into the soil or a light fertilizing.
