Techniques for Removing Palm Trees
In many cases, the easiest, most cost effective and time effective way for an arborist to remove a palm tree is to use his roping skills and scale the tree using ropes, harness and tree climbing spikes. The worker can then make his way up the tree with a handsaw removing any fronds on the way up with his handsaw. When the arborist has reached the top of the palm a chainsaw is used to block down sections of the tree trunk that can be wasily man handled. The blocks are then thrown to the ground where they can be removed by the ground crew.
Throwing the palm tree pieces to the ground works fine for areas where there is no structures or vegetation below that can be damaged by the heavy falling palm trunks. If there is a concern for damage, the tree trunks can be lowered to the ground using ropes and pulleys with the assistance of the ground crew.
Palm Tree Cleaning
One of the main frustrations with palm trees is the fronds can be quite messy, either hanging off the tree dead or having fallen to the ground. Eden Trees Arborists are experts in maintaining and cleaning palm tree fronds and are careful to leave the best appearance from any palm tree pruning and trimming we do. We focus on neat cutting and are very mindful not to damage the tree with our climbing spikes when we ascend the tree.

Common Palm Tree Species
Below we have listed some of the more common species of palms that are seen around Brisbane and the South East Queensland region and provided some helpful insights around its uses, maintenance and removal.
Alexander “Alex” Palm (Archontophoenix alexandrae)
These are one of the most common and popular palms around as the are attractive and self cleaning. The seed pods needs to be trimmed off for maintenance.
Cocos Palm (Arecastrum romanzoffianum)
Nice looking when well maintained. Unfortunately as they grow tall most people other than Arborist can maintain them as they are not self cleaning. The sees pods are another issue that people often complain about. The actually attract the bats and it makes them sick. Not good.
Considered a weed so best to remove and replace with a easier to maintain palm.
Golden Cane Palm (Dypsis lutescens)
These are a great choice for lots of reason. Do not grow too tall, not spiky, most people can manage them. They can get away on you if you don’t maintain them and then an arborist is required to bring them back to order.
