Palm Tree Cleaning – Resorts, Over 50’s Resorts, Body Corporates

Palm Cleaning

I will explain what we do, and try visually show you.

We purpose bought a Hinowa light (spiderlift / cherry picker) to clean palms, its only one of two in the State, the other is on the Sunshine coast (image below)

Palm Tree Cleaning

The narrow access spiderlift can access most resort, body corporate and over 50’s Resorts and allows us to access the crown of the palm. Looking down you can closely inspect and see developing seed pods and remove, thus increasing the amount of time between palm cleans. We prune the dead, yellowing fronds, seeds, pods, seed casings.

The frequency will generally vary between one to two per year between palm cleans depends on factors such as personal preferences such as aesthetics, public liability, budget, rain fall, heat, amount of nutrients.

Typically year 2 there is a significant reduction of seed being produced and cleaning frequencies can be reduced from twice to once per year.

Typically most tree loppers climb the palms using spikes. It makes a lot of very large unsightly holes but causes two other major problems. Spiking palms causes;

  • Spread of disease
  • Palms to stress and produce more seed, increasing the frequency the palms need to be cleaned.

The other strategy some tree loppers use is to spike up the palms and cut out a lot of volume in the hope it will reduce the frequency. Unfortunately many are not trained, or insured and don’t know what to look for.

Green Works


Green Works has been a local business for 13 years. Were trade qualified arborists, carry 20 million public Liability insurance, work cover, all our vehicles and plant are insured. We do a quality job and aim to clean up better than your gardener.


We would anticipate there may be minor marking to the turf as the spider lift accesses the lawn area. But we will take care to ensure any damage is minimised.


We generally attend the site 7am, complete our risk assessment, put out signage and commence work. We stack the fronds, green waste near a road location and traffic cone this off in a non-pedestrian area. We generally chip the green waste after 9am. We find this has the least disruption to a site.


We anticipate most palms would be cleaned using the spider lift. Where is cannot occur in inaccessible areas they will be climbed.



After inspecting the site we quote a per palm including GST per palm. Generally year two or three our price is significantly cheaper than our competitors due to the palms having needed to being cleaned less frequently.

Palms Removal, Cleaning, Alexander Palms

Palms Removal and Cleaning, Alexander Palms

Got problems with your Alexander Palms?.

During the 1970’s, 1980’s there was a trend to planting Cocos Palms. As the Palms reached maturity they started to seed prlifically causing slip hazards, looking messy, causing damage to pools and has a adverse effect on our Native wildlife.

As new planting trend that emerged was the Alexander Palm Archontophoenix alexandrae, a Palm that is Native to Queensland but self-cleaning. As the community viewed it as a safe option we planted the Palm with enthusiasm in pool enclosures, next to houses and even planted the Palms to screen out the Neighbors.

Twenty years on Alexander Palms are starting to reach their 20m height maturity.

Many organization are regularly getting their Alexander Palms, cleaned or removed. Frequently the self-cleaning palm….falling seed ponds and fronds falling from 20m above is seen as a public liability risk that needs to be managed.

Alexander Palms are generally cleaned once or twice per year depending on climatic conditions. There is a tendency in Queensland if it is dry

Green Works owns state of the art equipment that can access your palms in difficult to get places providing the safest option available to removing or cleaning your palms.

Were fully insured carrying 20 million dollar liability policy so were covered for working in shopping centres, councils, large commercial organizations as well as your family back yard. We also have current works compensation coverage.

Removing a Palm Tree in a pool area

Palms look sensational around pools. Many have been planted next to pools around the Gold Coast, Logan, Brisbane even parts of the Scenic Rim. But how do you go about removing a palm tree?

When cleaning or removing palms in confined spaces, you need to use an experienced, qualified arborist who uses the latest technology to ensure your pool is not damaged.

How is a palm removed?

Palms can weigh the same as your car. We access the top of the palm with our spider lift (one of only two in Queensland). The palm is dismantled in small sections and carried out. Were palms cannot be accessed our trade qualified arborists climb the palms.

Green Works is fully insured to ensure you don’t have to worry any legal risk such as what happens if the arborist hurts themselves.

Most of the Green Waste is chipped. You can keep all the mulch. We generally give the mulch to a couple of local schools.

We have a specialist stump grinder that can access the most confined spaces, can be lifted over fences to grind stumps to reduce the source of white ant infestation in your yard.

Once we complete the job we aim to clean up better than your gardener would.

Cocos Palms – Clean or Remove and Replant?

Cocos palms present all sorts of problems in pool areas. Many clients either have them removed or cleaned. Over the long term it is cheaper to remove the palms and replant with a palm species that is self-cleaning. There are many people clean palms and advertise but they are not insured and could hurt themselves undertaking something they are not trained to do. Always check to see if they have a current public liability policy. Most qualified arborists carry a 20 million dollar policy…. but check.

We access trees at height by the safest method possible using our spider lift. For further information, please click on the link for more information:

Why risk it… Some Palms, Trees are too dangerous to climb

Many Palms and Trees are far too deadly and hazardous to safely climb – for anyone, a home gardener or a tree surgeon.

With a minimum amount of access, our Spider lift can safely and efficiently remove any tree that poses danger and liability issues.

In the past, many difficult to reach trees were only accessible for pruning by climbing. Many trees are even impossible to reach with aerial bucket trucks. And so, the climbing arborist went ‘out on a limb’ to prune trees.

Work Safe Australia reported that “there have been a number of fatalities in Australia in recent years associated with conventional methods of tree removal.  In NSW 5 climbers have been fatally injured using conventional climbing methods since 2005.”

A Safer Method of Tree Pruning

With our own Spider Lift (pictured), we have the ability to enter narrow doorways, gates. This gives us fast, safe, and easy access to your nearly inaccessible trees. It doesn’t matter if the tree is very high either, as the elevated platform can reach up to 10 m in height.

Green Works Spider Lift can also travel on lawn without damaging the turf.

Why risk it? Take the safe option and call Jason on 0431 476 567 for a free quote today.
