Prepare for the upcoming hurricane season by checking trees for damaged or weak branches. Prune or stake trees as needed. Check for damage to fruit trees and ornamental plants and take action to minimize the effect of insects and/or disease on developing fruit or the overall health of the trees. Support large palms with braces for 6–8 months after planting.
