Default Do palm trees transplant easily?

At the entrance to Phillips villas three trees on one side were knocked down from the hurricane and one from the other side was leaning against a wall. It appears that 2 of the three were replanted (one is still on the ground) and the leaner is now straight. These are all large trees. Will these trees live after being uprooted for over a week and a half? Just curious. I know nothing about palm trees.

Not sure but when they brought one of our palms there was not much of a root ball, like a regular tree. It almost looked like it was flat cut. It's still living

If you've ever noticed, when palm trees are planted or even transplanted by a nursery, they never have much of a root ball.
I think we tend to think of them as trees and picture really large root balls.

Those replanted palms should be okay as long as they are watered frequently.

They should not be fertilized.
Nothing field dug (as in not from a pot) should ever be newly fertilized.

Keep your fingers crossed that they survive.
