Video - 50 year old palm tree is cut down

There is a growing threat to the majestic Canary Island Date Palm Tree here in San Diego. The South American Palm Weevil was first discovered in San Diego County in 2015. Mild winters have allowed the weevil to flourish and it is killing Canary Island Date Palms though out the county. Because mature date palms weigh several tons, they must be cut down once the infestation reaches a critical point. Climate change will allow this pest to keep moving north, towards Orange County and Los Angeles. Video by Doug Kalal, Great Gardens Landscape Design
