Palm Tree Removal and Cleaning

 

Certain palm trees, particularly cocos and phoenix palms, need to have the dead fronds and seed pods removed on an annual basis for aesthetic reasons and also to prevent the seeds from clogging pool filters, gutters, and littering gardens and patios. In some cases the client may wish to completely remove the palm for new developments or to replace it with a more suitable variety which requires no maintenance, such as a bangalow palm. Whatever the reasons, Sydney Tree Solutions can carefully prune or remove all types of palms, no matter where they are located, ensuring that absolutely nothing is damaged and everything is left clean and tidy.

Why do you need to clean palm trees?  

Palm tree cleaning encourages healthy growth and adds beauty to your space. A well-manicured palm tree growing in your yard creates a great impression on your visitors. It’s therefore paramount that you prune and trim your palm trees to ensure they are in top condition. Certain palm trees, particularly cocos and phoenix palms, need to have the dead fronds and seed pods removed on an annual basis for aesthetic reasons and also to prevent the seeds from clogging pool filters, gutters, and littering gardens and patios. The falling dead fronds from larger palm trees can also cause a significant hazard to the safety of people underneath and expensive damages to property. In many cases excess dead fronds and lots of ripe palm fruits can also provide a habitat for some unwanted rodents, bats or birds that cause a lot of mess underneath for the residents or owners. 

How do we remove or prune a palm tree?  

If you want to remove the palm tree, we use different approaches depending on your situation.  

  • If there is limited space and structures surrounding the palm tree we can carefully dismantle the tree using rigging ropes and pulley systems, or hand held pruning and passing down of the fronds and then blocking down the tree trunk in very small sections into a small drop zone. All done to ensure there are no damages to any infrastructure when doing the palm tree removal.
  • If there is sufficient space, our tree removal experts can simply fell the palm tree from the base in the exact direction required and then remove the palm tree in large pieces from the site.

If you wish to prune the palm tree we will also use careful rigging systems with ropes and pulleys to safely lower down the large fruits and pods to the ground and hand hold each individual palm tree frond to make sure it can be dropped in the right spot and doesn’t cause any damage to the surrounding area.
