Don’t rely on luck. Have your palm tree professionally pruned.
When it comes to palm tree trimming, Phoenix residents should take every precaution. The very act of trimming can be dangerous, and amateur trimming can actually hurt the health of the palm. Depending on the age, height, and condition, we’ll use differing methods. These factors can also affect which pests and problems are most likely to occur. When you want expert trimming of your palm tree from a team of tree technicians and arborists with 20 years of local experience, nobody provides skilled service with a smile like PV Trimmers.
Avoid these dangers of amateur palm tree trimming!
Electrical lines – It may seem like an obvious hazard, but unwary trimmers can be electrocuted by unnoticed power lines. Even when they are considered beforehand an amateur trimmer may become overwhelmed and forget where they are. This can lead to danger and deadly repercussions.
Safety line problems – Severing a safety line or disconnecting a clip without an additional tie-in can occur. Studies have shown that a chainsaw can go through a wire-core line in about 4 seconds. Without even knowing it an amateur can quickly cut their line and suffer a fall.
Suffocation – Sloughing palm fronds are a little-realized danger of palm tree trimming. Fronds are capable of dropping without detaching from the tree. These can weigh upwards of 500 pounds. They can slam tree trimmers into the tree trunk, crushing and even asphyxiating them.
