Safety, beauty, and value. This is what everyone would want to get from their palm trees in Perth. But are you aware it takes more than planting and watering the tree for it to offer such benefits?

You will need to continually prune the branches for the trees to grow healthy and beautiful. However, it is essential to note that palm tree pruning is best done by professional arborists that understand how it is supposed to be done. Read on to learn more about Perth palm tree trimming.

When should you prune a palm tree?

As experts, we strongly recommend that you trim your palm trees during spring. Why? This is because the dry fonds which may not be attractive, play a significant role in ensuring that the palm tree is protected from the excess heat experienced during summer and the cold during spring.

You will know that your palm trees need to be trimmed once the oldest fonds begin to turn brown, dry up, and eventually die. This is something that occurs every year, which means that palm tree trimming can only be done once a year.

Remember that when trimming, tools used in cutting have to be well sterilized so that they do not spread infections to the trees.

Benefits of trimming your palm trees

It helps the trees to thrive

When your palm trees are trimmed, it ensures that there is nothing that’s going to deter their growth. As your palm tree grows old, it becomes heavier and exerts excess weight on itself. In the end, some parts break and crack off.

It enhances the area’s beauty

As we already stated, trimming your trees is one of the ways that you get to increase their appearance. If you are managing a commercial property, you understand how important the aesthetics of the property matters.
