Trimming Palm Trees
Palm tree fronds are the leaf structures that adorn the tops of the palm trees. These fronds naturally grow out and spread, then they turn yellow, orange and then brown. This is a natural process that is normal for palm trees. Fronds should be trimmed and removed whenever they reach this brown stage of development. Timing this correctly allows your palm to naturally move the right amount of nutrients to begin growing a new frond where the old growth was cut away.
Some types of palm trees do not need to be trimmed as they naturally shed their fronds. These are the veithchia, foxtail and royal palm trees, yet they still need attention from qualified arborists to help them stay healthy and have the nutrients that help them grow. Having your palms trimmed and cared for properly will ensure their health and longevity. Improper care or no care can result in lowered resistance to cooler winter temperatures, a loss in overall health, a poorer looking palm tree, and even the transmission of tree diseases.
Palm Tree Nutrients
Part of caring for palm trees is not just simply trimming away old fronds but making sure the palm has the correct nutrients in the soil to keep it growing and healthy. In Arizona we have a lot of sandy soils which tends to drain very quickly. This means nutrients can seep past the palm’s root system too quickly for it to get what it needs. Palm tree care includes enriching the soil with the nutrients that palms need to grow well and stay healthy. Mulch can also help enrich the soil and protect the bases of palm trees from getting nicked by lawn care equipment. Phoenix Trim-A-Tree knows the right nutrients to add, and how much each size and species of palm will need. Let us help you take care of your palms so they will be the crowning jewel in your Phoenix landscape for many years to come.
