Palm tree removal, cleaning and maintenance

remove palm trees northern beaches

Palms are very different for deciduous or evergreen trees and, when it comes to large palm trees, it takes an expert arborist to undertake the appropriate cleaning and trimming to keep them looking lush and beautiful.

When people plant a palm tree, particularly cotton palms, date or cocos palms, they don’t realise how large they are capable of growing.  This is when they become a problem as they drop large fronds and berries.  The beautiful canopy is high up and only the trunk is seen unless you look skywards.

Luckily, qualified arborist Chris Allchin and his team at Banksia Arborcare is here to help. We have the skills and equipment we need to handle all types of palm trees – no matter their height or species.

We have 30 years of experience cleaning and removing palm trees along Sydney’s Northern Beaches, Upper and Lower North Shore.

Palm tree cleaning and maintenance.

Why do palm trees need to be cleaned and maintained?

Palm trees soon begin to look very messy without proper care and cleaning. Proper maintenance also improves their overall health and can help them live longer.

If your palm is suffering from any of these issues, we can help:

  • Dead or dying foliage
  • Seed pods attracting messy birds, bats and rats
  • Berries, seeds or nuts falling and posing potential injury to humans and pets.
