So I got this job that includes removing a palm tree. I nodded and said "Oh sure, I can do that." (But I have no idea how.) It's about 8 feet high and about 3 feet in diameter. It's not too bushy at the top. Any ideas or instructions (or destructions) would be most welcome. I heard they have a root that looks like a carrot. If that is the case, I'm envisioning a chain and a truck. Then I have to haul it away. If it's easy to cut up with a chainsaw, then that will be the call .... if not ... then it will probably be a wench/come-along and a trailer. I think I recall trying to cut up similar substances with a chainsaw and the pulp of the trunk pretty much prevents the chainsaw from working properly. It's one of those trunks that looks like a pineapple. Any ideas or advice I could get on this would also be greatly appreciated. I just want to tell everyone, I have rec'd some great advice on this board and it has really helped me in my business. Thanks to you all. --- 4 Leaf.
