Palm Tree Removal Services Sydney
Palm Trees can add a real tropical feel to your home – but they can be a serious problem when they start to grow. Foliage can cause damage to your property and create a whole load of mess – so you might consider removing the trees altogether.
Although they look simple to remove, palm trees can have spikes and weigh considerably more than you’d expert. More so than ever, it’s crucial to partner with a professional arborist to help with palm tree removal.

Palm trees can really enhance the look of an area giving that relaxed tropical feel and they really stand out from native Australian trees which adds to the effect. When they grow tall they can really start to become a problem as foliage dropping from them can cause really damage to surrounding property as well as being extremely messy. Although they may not look as hard to cut down as some larger trees, you are always better off using a palm tree removal expert to do the work as the trunks are still heavy enough to cause serious damage and injury.
If you have ever tried to cut down a palm tree on your own you will know how difficult this task is, as the trunk is usually sharp and spiky where the previous branches fell from, and the weight in the trunk is much higher than you would expect.

Where space is on our side, our favoured palm tree removal technique is to climb the tree using spikes and a harness. We use a handsaw to remove the lower branches and foliage then rope the chainsaw to the top and start cutting the tree down piece by piece. The pieces of the trunk can be dropped to the ground if there are no surrounding structures or gardens that can be damaged, but if there are then we use a rope and pulley system to lower the pieces to the ground under control.
