Palm trees can spruce up the look of an area providing a relaxed tropical feel. Whether a palm tree is within your residential premise or commercial space, you want to keep it looking at its best.

Frequently Asked Questions


Tree emergencies happen when parts of trees or whole ones fall onto your property. Sometimes downed power lines can still be carrying electricity and the fallen tree may compromise the structural integrity of her house, so stay away from them if you’re not an expert!

While it may seem like palm trees are easier to transplant than broadleaf plants because they produce new roots near the base of their trunks and don’t require as much root mass, digging up a palm properly will make the process go more smoothly. More importantly, though is that you dig up all four sides so there’s no chance for waterlogging or other negative effects on your newly planted tree. The best way we’ve found order to increase our chances at success when planting these majestic giants into different types/distances from roadsides has been by making sure each side gets dugout before moving onto another section.

Although it may seem easier to transplant a palm than similarly sized broadleaf trees, you should dig up the plant with care as this will make the process much smoother and increase your chances of success. A properly dug-up palm has fresher roots near its base which makes growing them after being transplanted far less daunting for both planting site preparation as well as survival rates in new soil environments.

The palm tree is an attractive addition to any landscape, but it comes at the cost of some maintenance needed for removing roots. Digging around your home’s trunks with a spade will give you access about 20-25 inches deep where most large cancers can be removed using an axe or chisel depending on how far up they extend into soil surrounding trees’ root systems . Cut these off completely before excavating any remaining fleshy parts below ground level inside their own circumference which should help keep future complications from happening again!

You can temporarily stunt the palm trees’ growth by pruning their roots. The palms need to be at an optimum “root ball size” for them to even grow, so this might not work out well in your favor if done too often or on multiple trees simultaneously! However, with proper timing it could possibly help reduce height near future events like construction sites which will become more common as time goes on Towne Lake becomes more developed.
