Why Do I Need My Palm Trees Trimmed Anyway?

In talking with our clients, we commonly receive questions on why it's important to trim palm trees in the West Palm Beach, FL area. The truth is that there are a lot of reasons why, but we'd like to focus on a few of the most important reasons we recommend our client's regularly trim their palm trees.

Dead or wilting palm fronds can become a major annoyance for homeowners, so it's important that your palm trees are trimmed at least once a year. This not only keeps your property looking great, but it helps keep your home safe. Dead fronds can fall off of trees and cause injury during the hurricane season. Additionally, dead palm fronds that gather in your yard can not only become a potential fire hazard, but they could also become a hideout for unwanted pests.

Over trimming or improper trimming can cause harm to the tree.  It's always important to hire a licensed and insured company for tree services in West Palm Beach, FL. Don't fall victim to an under-qualified contractors pitch just because the price seems good. As my mom always says, "If it's too good to be true- it probably is"!
