Ganoderma butt rot is a relatively new and lethal disease, mostly seen in Florida palm trees. It then begins to rapidly work its way through the tree’s butt (base) area, essentially rotting the wood. The only cure is to cut down the palm tree. Haul out your tools, pull it out! Take it out and haul away!
