Like most of North Florida, Jacksonville’s weather is usually mild in winter and hot and humid in summer, placing it in USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 9A. However, the area straddles Hardiness Zone 8B, and temperatures can dip below freezing for a few weeks each year, with hard freezes at night.
Cold Protection for Palm Trees
Cold weather can affect palm trees in several ways.
Frost and freezing temperatures can damage the actual tissue of the plant and restrict the passage of water through the trunk. Cold snaps can also slow down the plant’s growth and reduce the activity of its roots. These things can weaken the palm and make it susceptible to disease.
But there are ways to protect your palm trees from cold damage.
