    I don't know anything about pruning palm trees because I live up North, but why does everyone strip all the branches off? I don't get it. I don't think they look good at all with just a few branches at the top.

    Say what you want, customer loved it and they are the ones writing the checks. Trimming palms is a cash cow, far more lucrative then just mowing.....

    This lady had the HOA all over her a$$ because of the palms looking like this. HOA's love to send out the violation notices when the palms get too unruly, and they are everywhere, and everyone needs them done and lawn guys cant/wont do it...

    Yeah, like I said, I never knocked your work, I just knocked the trees themselves.

    I agree, the trees are garbage. THey are full of bugs, have wasp nests in them. Some times rat nests, and/or squirrel nests. Not to mention the fronds are extremely sharp and if not trimmed right will snag skin. I have many war wounds from these things......

    My dad was painting a house for a couple who has a HUGE palm tree, and he dosnt trim it, its like his baby. He actually did an addition to the house and in order to do the work he trimmed some... of the branches, well when this guy came back home from Maryland, he was so mad that my dad trimmed some of the palms off. Anyways, when he was painting the house, my dad fell off the ladder and fell into the tree and one of the tips broke off and got lodged into his leg. He now has a scar from it and wobbles a little. I member when he first fell, his leg got so swolen, he was forced to take medication and could bearly walk on it. I think an inch broke off into his leg. It was pretty. He still has problems and this was about 3 years ago.
