Palm Tree Trimming
Palm trees are a great landscaping feature and tend to grow well here in Arizona. However, palm trees can grow out of control rather quickly and also tend to suffer from other ailments such as insect infestations, under fertilization, and palm tree diseases. Should you have palm trees incorporated into your landscape it is important to nurture them and give them the required maintenance and care that they need to thrive and remain healthy. It is also important to keep palm trees maintained and well cared for so that they don’t become a safety hazard and a potential danger to both your home and its occupants.

Palm trees can become quite the safety hazard when left uncared for or unmaintained. They differ from other trees in that they shed their fronds (palm leaves) on their own. Because of the tree’s height, weight, and size of the fronds, falling palm fronds can be very dangerous causing potentially serious injuries. Another factor to consider with palm tree maintenance and care is that not all palm trees are meant to be cared for in the same way. All About Trees arborists not only are very knowledgable and experienced with the many different kinds of palm tree species they are also equipped to care for and maintain them in their own individual ways.
While palm trimming is ideally done annually there are different factors to consider depending on the type of palm tree you have.
Mexican Fan Palms – should be done in first week of June. This is so the seed pods will be fully developed and they won’t throw out seed pods after they are trimmed, until the following year.
California Palms – we recommend trimming the second week of July for maximum benefit to the tree.
Date Palms – should be trimmed in May, if you want to avoid a seed mess.
Queen Palm – this palms care is tough in the desert. Our soils lack many nutrients they require. Nutrients must be artificially replaced in order for them to get their maximum potential nutrients. We fertilize then via deep root feeding.
Royal Palms, Foxtail Palms, and Veithchia Palms don’t need trimming because they naturally shed fronds when needed without much potential danger. They do still need nutrients and care to help them grow. And as with all types of palm trees if they are not cared for properly they are in danger of dying & needing tree removal or becoming safety hazards to you and your family.
