Monkey Tree Frost damage

Tom Hyland asked 11 years ago

We have a number of what we call ” monkey trees”, they look like coconut trees without the nuts. We live in Galway city. They are over 20 years old and have been evergreen until the severe frost. The leaves have fallen off, even the little shoots perished. I suppose I should wait and see or could I apply some compost to help. Our evergreen privet hedge has gone brown, all leaves seem to have perished.

Palm trees are cordylines and they have suffered all over the country and usually re-sprout. The privet is likely to recover too.
