In 2006, the Tampa/Sarasota area, which includes St. Petersburg, was infected by a deadly disease, according to the Tampa Bay Times. At first date palms were attacked but cabbage palms and Sabal palmetto, the Florida state tree, soon became infected. The disease earned the term Texas Phoenix Palm Decline (TPPD). Symptoms include discoloration of the leaves closest to the ground. The portion of the tree that flowers will die first. If caught early enough, TPPD can be treated with an antibiotic, which has been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).Tree service professionals will inject oxytetracycline HCL every four months for the remainder of the palm tree’s life.

In the 1970s, Florida palms became infected with “lethal yellowing,” which is a bacterium that has no cell membrane. Coconut palms were almost completely eliminated from this infestation.
