Featuring bold foliage and distinctive ornamental shapes, palms add beauty and value to our landscapes. If they aren’t pruned on a regular basis, palm health, beauty and safety can be compromised. Through pruning at regular intervals, ValleyCrest Tree Care Services can improve the appearance and health of your palms. Tree pruning to remove dry fronds, seed stalks and frond stubs can increase the safety of your property for clients, tenants and employees.
As new fronds develop on palms, lower fronds become dry. At ValleyCrest, we focus on removing the older dry fronds, as well as any seed or fruit stalks.
Benefits of Palm Pruning
- Decrease risk of falling debris, pest or fire damage which can occur when dead fronds are left in palms
- Improve appearance of both your palms and your landscape; some palms will retain dead fronds for years if they aren’t pruned
- Make your property safer, some palm varieties shed old leaves and drop seeds and fruit which can damage vehicles or injure pedestrians
Think About Clearance
Palms depend on green, healthy fronds to produce food for growth. So, whenever possible, we avoid unnecessary removal. If healthy fronds happen to be interfering with traffic, blocking signage or encroaching on building structures, pruning may be necessary for clearance.
