In a state such as Arizona, where a palm tree can be found on virtually every corner, it is only natural that you will require our palm tree maintenance services at one time or another. Our tree maintenance services will ensure your palms are protected from insect infestations, diseases and deficiencies commonly caused by malnutrition. No, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you, and yes you read that right.
Although it may appear to most that your palm tree is invincible; since it tolerates the Arizona heat so well; they are in fact extremely sensitive and require a large variety of nutrients in order to remain beautifully healthy. At Branch Management Tree Service, we have certified arborists on staff, all of whom understand the uniqueness of palms and how to properly care for them.
The normal progression of your palms fronds are for them to turn yellow, orange and them brown. Once your palm’s fronds have turned brown it is then, and only then, that they should be trimmed. This progression allows your palm efficient time to utilize all of its stored nutrition, helping to ensure that healthy new growth takes place, where the cut was made.
Royal, foxtail and veitchia palm trees are self-cleaning palms; hence they never need trimmed; they actually shed their dead fronds on their own. Allow Branch Management Tree Service’s experienced team to perform all of your palm trimming needs. We can do it faster, safer and at an affordable price. When done properly, palm trimming will ensure your palm’s healthy growth, but don’t incorrectly it can lead to:
A loss in vigor
A reduction in nutritional health
The transmission of disease
A lowered tolerance to the cold and windstorms
Palm malnutrition, as mentioned above, is one of the most common issues we come across when working with Arizona’s palm trees. This is in large part due to the palms thriving in such a sandy, well-drained soil, which causes its nutrients to leach away rather quickly. We at Branch Management Tree Service, utilize specialized methods when treating nutritional deficiencies, which are designed to provide consistent feeding.
