5 Reasons You Should Consider Removing Palm Trees from Your Garden

Palm trees are associated with tropical paradises, Hollywood and other glamorous locations. However, in reality, a fully grown palm tree on your property can cause a lot of problems. If you have recently moved into a new property which has a palm tree in the garden, you may not have considered having it removed. Below is a guide to 5 reasons you should ask a professional tree service to remove a palm tree.

It can help to keep your yard clean and safe

As a palm tree grows, it will shed leaves and bark. This material will collect at the base of the tree and may blow around your garden making it look messy. These dead or dry leaves can also create a fire hazard if they are allowed to accumulate.

It helps with pest control

The palm tree in your yard will produce seeds. When the wind blows, these seeds will fall into the soil below. Pests may be attracted to your property by the presence of these seeds. The only way to deal with this problem is to remove the palm tree.

It prevents damage to your neighbour's property

The large palm leaves of a mature tree can easily catch the breeze. During the high winds of a tropical storm, the palm leaves may be blown to the grown. If these heavy leaves strike a neighbours home or their car, it could result in serious damage which you will be responsible for.

It increases the amount of light in your garden

Why palm trees can be a useful way of creating shady areas in your garden, as they grown they can actually begin to block out all of the sunlight. This can have a serious impact on the other plants and trees growing in your garden as they will not receive the rays they need to grow and thrive. A very shady garden can also spoil your enjoyment of the sunshine and it may make activities like swimming less fun.

It creates space for other things

If you wish to extend your pool or to build a larger shed in your garden, removing a palm tree would provide the space you need to build these items.
