Palm Tree Trimming involves removing palm fronds that are yellow, brown or broken. These dead fronds have the potential to fall and cause damage. Many palm fronds are quite large and have sharp spines and edges that could be very dangerous if they were to fall onto a person or animal.

Palm Tree Trimming

 

Palm Tree Trimming includes removing the palm flower and fruit stalks. Though natural, the formation of fruit and seeds can actually weaken the tree unnecessarily. Removing the flowers and fruit frees up nutrients that will benefit new fronds, roots and storage reserves. The fruit produced by palm trees can serve as food for pests and will later drop, making a mess and possibly staining concrete surfaces.
