Pruning palms

When do you know it is time to cut off older growth on palm trees, specifically date palms.

Only prune fronds which hang below the horizontal. Do not remove those growing upright since this may slow the growth and reduce vigor.

Here's an excellent article on palm pruning: http://www.ufei.org/files/pubs/SP0416.pdf
