Problems and discomfort caused by do not prune the palmeras
In the case of Washingtonian palms, both robust and filiferous, there is a periodic fall of flowers and "black balls". These can be very annoying in areas of passage or in the vicinity of swimming pools.
Regarding the specimens of Palmeras Canarias and Datileras, the problem lies in their dates. When ripe, these fruits begin to fall to the ground and stain the surface, generating dirt and sloppiness in the garden or passage areas.
Due to the lack of pruning of our specimens, rodent nests such as mice can also proliferate, which nest between the palms. As we know, rats are usually transmitters of diseases, thus being a danger to people who live near these palm trees.

professionalism and experience in palm tree pruning
It is very important that the personnel in charge of carrying out the palm tree pruning are specialists in this work. Otherwise irreparable damage can occur to the leaves or the palm tree itself. These damages can be wounds in the specimen and even structural damage.
In Raíz Verde we have a team of professionals trained and accredited in the pruning of all types of palm trees. All our staff has the qualifications and courses required to carry out these works with maximum safety and efficiency.
For us, experience is a fundamental pillar, and that is why our staff has more than 20 years of experience in pruning palm trees.
This experience and our highly trained team is what allows us to develop each job correctly. For example, when pruning Date Palms or the Canary Islands, it is very important to training correct of the "Walloon" or capital. This is a fundamental element, because it is its means of adaptation to the ecosystem and where the specimen maintains moisture.
We adapt each of our services to the characteristics and the state in which the palm trees are located. Sometimes, we find abandoned palm trees that have been without maintenance for many years. In these cases we usually make use of chainsaws, in order to prune their palms more easily. Subsequently, we review with the right tools to achieve a good finish.
From Green Root we recommend that the specimens are pruned, at least, once every 24 months. After this time, the palm tree begins to have an aspect of abandonment, and its pruning becomes more difficult.
If you haven't pruned your palm trees for a long time and want to keep them healthy and strong, don't hesitate to give us a call!
One of the reasons that makes palm tree pruning essential to maintain their health is the arrival of the Red weevil. The pruning of palm trees allows the palm tree or palm mower to better observe the specimen, discovering if it is affected by this pest. If so, the severity of the infection must be evaluated and the needs of the palm tree must be determined for proper fumigation and monitoring.
Among palm trees or palm mowers, the climb to the trunk is a common practice that provides a lot of information about the state of a specimen. With this technique you can observe different aspects of the trunk such as: its uniformity, the existence of holes, among other problems. A thorough observation of the trunk can detect the red palm weevil or other pests, avoiding future problems in the palm trees.
