Palm Tree Services Brisbane
Palm tree services Brisbane. Palm trees look beautiful and they certainly give your garden the feel of a tropical island. They also provide some much-needed shade in summer. One of our most frequently requested palm tree services is on the Bangalow palm. The Bangalow palm tree is a popular addition to many a Brisbane garden. It grows up to 25 metres high and is several metres wide. The trunk of the palm tree is wider at the base and the palm tree leaves are large. The leaves provide shade and protection against the harsh Queensland sun.
And the Bangalow palm is quick to grow! This makes it a great choice for those impatient gardeners planting a new garden. It’s also a low maintenance tree as it sheds its dead leaves. And this means there’s no need to prune! However, it does have very large and heavy palm fronds that may be at risk of blowing loose in Brisbane’s notorious storm season. To avoid any potential damage, it’s important to prune the Bangalow palm fronds, so we offer this palm tree services Brisbane.
Palms Need Maintenance
Another popular palm for many Brisbane residents is the Cocos palm. The Cocos palm is tough! They can withstand the many Queensland droughts, frost (if they ever occur) and can thrive in shallow soil.
The Cocos palm grows to an average of 12 metres high and are popular hangouts for fruit bats because of their pods of yellow, nut-like fruits. However, these pods of nuts are messy, they drop everywhere and germinate wherever they land! They also pose a slippery threat to anyone who treads on one and look out if you happen to mow over them!
So, trimming these nut pods are another of our palm tree services offered by Brisbane mulching and tree lopping. Our professional arborist will climb that pesky Cocos palm and remove those pods, well before the bats arrive or they fall.

Another favourite in Brisbane is the Foxtail palm tree. Again, the Foxtail palm is almost drought resistant, although it does require regular watering to flourish. The Foxtail palm is fully grown is just one or two years.
The maintenance for a foxtail palm is relatively easy as the palms are self-cleaning. This means the dead leaves will fall and the leaves will regenerate. The foxtail palm trees like mulch as mulch helps to keep the ground moist and protects the trunk from damage when performing yard work. And mulch helps to keep the weeds away and retain the nutrients in the soil.
And if you need mulch, Brisbane mulching and tree lopping will mulch your green waste and leave the mulch for you to use in the garden!
