Need Your Palm Trees Pruned or Removed?

Eden Trees are your local, great value, fully qualified & insured tree removal company

South-east Queenslands beautiful sub tropical climate is ideal for growing Palm trees . You will often find them in gardens and around pools to create that tropical look and feel. Each species of palm tree has its own advantages and disadvantages, and often times owners of palms will lose their fondness of the species after realising it is messy and hard to maintain how they would like it. For messier species such as cocos palms the owners may find themselves opting for a palm tree removal service rather than maintain the effort required for upkeep.

Eden Trees are an established, family run tree removal company based in Logan. Our team provide palm tree removal and cleaning across the whole southern Brisbane region as well as the Gold Coast. We are pleased to provide both a friendly customer service based approach along with great value pricing and we believe this has been key to our long standing success in the tree removal industry.

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)

Cocos palm in Logan QLD

cocos palm – syragrus romanzoffiana

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)

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.

Great service! Response was great, Phil came down and gave a good quote and had his men come down a few days later and commenced a fairly hefty tree removal and trimming
process involving multiple trees. Work was done in a day and my yard was given a new lease of life. Very happy with their services.

Really great experience, Phil was knowledgeable from the beginning and gave us some tips regarding our garden bed as well. We even tried to get 2 other companies out for
quoting, one didn't show and one showed up but never gave us a quote, so quite unprofessional. Glad we went with Eden trees! When Micah and his team came out they were professional and very friendly, he also gave some further tips and how to be able to prune our mango tree ourselves from now on. Really appreciate the guidance from Phil & his team! If we ever need tree services in the future we know who to reach out to.

Eden's team were good cooperative skilled workers and easy communicators. Not rough-necks. I am happy that I chose them for the big tree job. Provided a professional w
ritten quote. Gave no big 'sales story' about how hard the job would be. Kept to arranged times. I felt happy that GST was honestly quoted and paid. Eden's quote was lower than two others and higher than one other. I would use Eden again.

Eden Trees were awesome. They were the only company out of 3 or 4 that came out on site to quote and their quotes were less expensive than the others (who wouldn't even
come out on site). The guys arrived on time, worked quickly, and were very friendly and personable. I would definitely use them again and probably will in the future! Thanks so much
