    This is my first post to the forum, Hi!, I have a multi trunk robellini palm that has been doing well for 2 years, one of the trunks no longer has fronds and looks likes its dying or dead. Can 1 trunk die and the rest of the plant be ok? What should I do with the dead trunk? I live in S Fl and the palm is planted outdoors.
    Thanks for your help

    Yes; the remaining trunks may survive, but it would be better
    to find out what killed the other one so it doesn't spread to
    the remaining healthy trunks. I would cut it out and dispose
    of it as a sanitation measure.
