Splitting Palm tree

BluebaronBluebaron Posts: 226
My mother has a large Austrailn Palm that was frost damaged years ago and grew 3 separate new trunks. The old trunk is still there and was cut to about 3 feet the new trunks are around 6 feet. Do you think it would be possible to divide the palm into 3?. Any my advice on how to proceed with this?

    Well i think I will forgo the division as I was expecting a mass of root structure and badly got a large underground trunk!

    I have soaked the roots and will repeat tomorrow anyone want to give odds on survival?
