Stan explains why the palms are dying on the Embarcadero.

Part of my overall genius is Horticulture. I can tell you why they dying. The City makes the huge mistake of having crews prune fronds long before they should be. That's leaving the Palms wide open to infections. Despite what people think,"Pineapple" cuts to Canary Island Date palms weakens the trees. Its recommended also that when you do prune those palms - you have to disinfect tools between working on trees. Something no doubt ignored.
I've seen more big palms killed...and that "pruning" practice and a dead trunk is all that remains. Go ahead,forward this to the City arborist.  I KNOW I'm right.Why he doesn't know this with 250G worth of palms at risk...
