    Recently bought a house with many palms, I cannot tell what some of them are, any ideas:

    What is this:

    And is this one Sabal or Washingtonia:

    What kind of saw do I need to buy to prune the trunk on this one?

    Tony, Welcome! Your first palm is Wodeyetia bifurcate ( common name Foxtail palm) the second palm pictured is the Fl native Sabal palmetto. The answer to removing old leaves is any good sharp saw should do the trick.

    Cut and remove brown fronds only. :)
