Palm trees are a popular addition in the garden of most Brisbane homes as they create a lovely tropical ambience and compliment the warm environment. Due to our humid climate, Palm trees tend to grow quite quickly. There are various types of Palm trees, so prior research on what type suits your location will help to achieve optimum results.
Palm trees can add an artistic and ornamental feel to an area in your garden. However, the root system of Palm trees can cause property damage. This may result in the need to remove them at a later date. It is worth considering that planting Palms may become a minor investment when it comes to maintaining their overall look.
Palm Cleaning involves removing dead fronds and seed pods. This helps to make your Palm trees safe and adds to their visual appeal. Another good reason to remove the seed pods, is to stop the seeds from clogging drains, gutters, pool filters & pool vacuums.
The weight of large dead fronds can be dangerous. Furthermore, they can be cumbersome and difficult to dispose of. Once they reach a certain height, it is a good idea to seek the services of an experienced climber.
