Palm trees are one of the most commonly planted trees across the states, and it is for a good reason. They can handle drought and requires little maintenance. Although they are all these things, they do require certain types of tree care.
Do you need your palm trees trimmed? Even though palm trees are typically low maintenance, they do require occasional trimming. At Dallas Tree Removal, we will evaluate your trees and trim them when needed using proven techniques that will not only help stimulate the growth of your trees, but will also strengthen their roots to withstand storms.
If you’d like to learn more about palm tree trimming here are some important things you should know:
- Palm tree trimming, unlike regular tree trimming, does not require constant maintenance. Once or twice a year is typically enough, unless fronds keeps dying, then an arborist is needed to assess the problem to provide the proper nutrition it needs.
- Since palm trees have different structure compared to other trees, a different assessment is needed to identify when or how they should be trimmed.
- Some palm trees often get too tall for an urban tree, and may be deemed as hazardous. When it comes to that point, felling a palm tree requires certain methods that differ from felling regular trees. Depending on its specie and height, rates may vary.
When trimming your palm trees, we will always use a cherry picker or ladder, and will never use climbing spikes that can possibly damage the trunks and spread disease, which can occur when the spikes are re-used from tree to tree. Any tools used will be thoroughly cleaned between each use to avoid these problems.
