Palm Tree Removal

Breaking through Dense Bark

A palm tree that has become old, sick, damaged or obstructive can be an absolute nightmare for homeowners. The palm will begin to look ugly and can pose a threat through the potential to drop branches or coconuts. However, removing a palm is a challenging job because of the unique challenges posed by its roots and bark. Palm trees have a particularly dense, spiky exterior that acts as a protective shell. This type of bark can be very difficult to cut for inexperienced loppers with standard chainsaws. To break through this exterior safely and effectively you require training, expertise and high-quality equipment.

Palm Tree Stump Grinding

However, once you’ve managed to cut down the palm, the next challenge comes with extracting the stump. The stump of a palm tree is difficult to remove due to the roots which typically grow horizontally. This results in a root ball with a wide diameter that can be destructive to remove. Our team overcomes this obstacle by using a stump grinding approach instead of excavating the entire root system. Using an industrial stump grinder, our team will break down the stump to below the surface of the soil. This process will cut off the root system from their source, causing them to decompose in the soil rather than unearthing all of the soil in the process of removal.

Managing the Green Waste

The final challenge in removing a palm tree is managing the green waste created in the process. Unlike other varieties of trees which can be broken down through a wood chipper, the bark of a palm is too dense and spiky to be processed through the machine. Instead, the green waste of the palm tree must be transported in larger sizes off-site to be dealt with at a different facility. This makes green waste transportation and management a longer, more labour-intensive process.

Palm Tree Cleaning

Palm tree cleaning is a specialised process that enables your palms to look their best. By stripping off the outer layer, cleaning the trunk and pruning the leaves, your palm is kept healthy and given a radiant shine. It’s important to have this process done by a qualified arborist to ensure it doesn’t damage the palm.
