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:
