we trim wa****onia, texas sabal and mexican fans by cutting the lower frons off about 2-3 inches from the base. they are still pretty wide, but they are furter off the ground. the frons will continue to arc towards the ground as they mature. some times we trim several times a year if they are in high traffic areas. i dont recommend "skinning" the trunks. i think it gives the tree more cold hardiness to leave the "bark" on them.
by the way, im not too sure what a king and queen palm looks like. are you talking about queen sagos?
