A palm tree gives a tropical feel, something special to your garden, something eye-catching between the native trees and plants. That is, when they are well looked after! As they grow, they get tall and can be hard to maintain. The hanging foliage, known as fronds, can become an eyesore instead of being something beautiful. They can even become dangerous and damage neighbouring buildings.
It’s no small task to prune and trim a palm tree! The spikes on the leaves from a palm tree are sharp and can cut through skin, or can even take out an eye. Cutting one down, you may think compared to other larger trees would be easy. But between the weight of the tree, the sharp and spiky leaves, this can be a dangerous task. That’s why here at Cutting Edge Tree Maintenance we always recommend using a professional climbing team to take care of your palm trees.
When Should I Prune My Palm Trees?
You should look into pruning your palm trees if you notice there are dead or dying fronds. As palm trees are continually growing, the older fronds will start to go brown, sag and eventually start to fall off.
Removing these fronds at the right time prevents damage from breakage, fire hazards, and even stops pests like rats, insects and snakes from nesting among the dead foliage. But just as importantly, it will help with the overall health of your palm tree.
What Should I Avoid When Pruning My Palm Trees?
When Pruning or trimming your palm tree, many gardeners, amateur and professionals alike, make the mistake of over pruning, removing healthy fronds. This mistake can make the tree weak, damaging the health of the palm tree. By removing too much foliage, you stop the process of photosynthesis, leaving the tree hungry for nutrients.
Can I Prune The Tree Myself?
Of course, you can, but you run the risk of over pruning the tree, which could in turn kill it. Also, dangerous animals and snakes can be living in the tree!

Do I Need To Remove My Palm Tree?
It’s unfortunate, but sometimes a palm tree needs to be removed. There are various reasons you might have to remove a palm tree. One reason is disease and infection. If you see all the fronds start to discolour, or wilt, your tree might need to be removed before it infects the surrounding trees.
Another reason could be roots becoming too big, damaging your property or your neighbours. Damage caused to properties and plumbing can be an expensive affair if not dealt with in time.
If the tree becomes big enough, another common cause to remove it is that it starts to grow into a neighbouring property, causing complaints from your neighbours.
