Palm with exposed roots


Here is a palm that has an exposed root ball.

Looks like it's going to fall over with a push, but quite strong actually.

I have no idea how it got to be this way.

Is it an accident waiting to happen, the next hurricane will send it crashing on the roof?

look like a KING palm ? maybe when they put in the brick side walk? they grared dirt out ? from the look's it isn't that big of a palm if it did come over i don't think it would do much dammage , not if it were a taller palm i would eather remove or anchor it like a 3 way 2 from the house and one from the fence , but the fence isn't much of a tie point eather, i guess you could get some one to remove and dig hole deeper and replant, it still will grow, look's like lot's of the root has been cut any way, if replanted this would put out new root runners, nice palm i woud do this if mine, it looks like a 10 to 15 feet high which isn't much height, i live in port st. lucie,fl and have lot's of queen palm's , lot's of work but they look good

I agree that it's a King Palm and this may be the result of being planted too shallow. There is a risk of it blowing over. I think the ideal situation would be too dig up and plant deeper and stake it once it's replanted.
