For healthy, beautiful palms, occasional palm pruning is sometimes required. But just chopping off limbs willy-nilly isn’t the route to thriving palms! There is a right and wrong way to prune palms, and the correct approach varies depending on species. So instead of risking major damage to your palms with amateur or DIY tree trimming, call in the pros at Simply Trees.
Our professional tree care experts abide by tree industry standards under the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), and we put our expertise to work to ensure your trees are cut back in the safest way. For example, while spur climbing is generally safe for palm trees, we typically opt not to use these techniques with hardwood trees, as they can damage these trees. Instead we set up lines to climb into the tree without using spurs, providing us the access we need to the tree’s canopy without harming the tree itself. As a result, we can effectively trim the canopy from the inside out to achieve beautiful results in a way that best helps the tree flourish.
