I see that spot that's oozing. Those leaves almost look like they twisted in wind maybe. Wouldn't hurt to dump some Hydrogen peroxide on that wound (full strength).

Bismarcks are highly susceptible to palm weevils. Especially after they get damaged. Maybe that is it.

Thanks for the responses to my question.

I drenched the tree with ten gallons of Bifemthrin ( Lesco Cross Check) to flush the weevil out. Nothing came out. I also drenched the soil with liquid copper fungicide. That, along with washing all of the Palm frond leaves down with Organocide. Fingers crossed!

I hope that it is only wind damage from Dorian.

The new heart frond appears suspect though.

Copper fungicides are serious environmental contaminants in Florida. They were used heavily in citrus groves. I'm worrying about a Satakentia palm.
