Every one in our village seems to have lost their 'palm' trees this month. We had three, 30 years old, and like every other locally, suddenly all the 'leaves' altho not themselves dead, fell to the ground, leaving bare trunks. The base of the trunks seem to be very moist. Are the trees completely lost or might they regrow from the ground. We assume the artic winter was to blame, or could it be a disease spreading throughout the neighbourhood? We live on the Welsh sideof the Bristol Channel.
