Australian fern tree (too tall)


By Makimo

Can I just cut off the dead part of the fern tree trunk, remove it and plant it in the same place? Jan



I'm not sure if I can help but I guess it would depend on the type of tree fern it is.
Is it in the ground or in a pot?
It would be helpful if you reposted your question with a couple of photos.
Sorry I can't be of more help.

Depends which tree fern you've got - if its Dicksonia antarctica, yes, you can saw it through and replant the top, but if its Cyathea australis, you can't. More info in the link below
