I would have just cut it off at the stump because I would have no idea where to start:confused:

Neither, used a pole pruner. If you notice from the pic, it is barely as tall as the house...

"looks good never dealt with them so are they easy to cut through or not"

They are so easy to cut, the pole pruner goes through them like a hot knife going thru butter....

How often do you have to do that to the tall palms? Why are the bottom branches dead on the tall plams? New growth, hurricane, or what?

usually they get trimmed twice a year

that is just how palm trees are, after a while the lower fronds die

So in florida is tree service part of the yearly lawn care package? Up here tree service is seperate from lawn care.

No not usually, most people are too cheap. I have a tree biz that I run seperate from my lawn biz.

Its funny, people will pi$$ and moan when you quote them $100/month for lawn service, but quote them $100 to trim a couple of trees that takes you twenty minutes and they have no problem whatsoever.

Once I have enough consistent palm tree business, I am out of the lawn business. Unless I can get a couple of idiots that I trust enough to run around with my lawn equipment. Otherwise I am probably going to sell all of it and get a chipper..Thats the plan at least.

looking at those things make me glad I dont live in Flordia. For some reason, I dont find Palm trees appealing. To each his own. But then again if theres money to be made, I like it.

Looks good, shoot me a PM with your contact info, I stay away from all tree work, even though I know thats alot of business down here, I just don't have the time being a solo guy to do the climbing so I usally contract my tree work out, but I see your in the tampa area, and would be more then willing to shoot you some work!
