This is my palm tree, not sure what type it is but it had doubled in size this year. The picture of it smaller was when we first uncovered it from under an elderberry bush in March. It has flourished since then.
Should I be taking off the bottom rows of leaves to form a trunk or just leave it?

Might be a cordyline? I would take the lower leaves off if they go dry and brown.

What a beauty!
I would leave it be and remove the leaves only if necessary, but it's down to personal taste.

I must admit, I am very impressed with it. When I uncovered it the leaves were all broken and it looked sorry for itself.
its doubled in size since then!
