Palm trees are a popular choice throughout Tauranga and surrounds, but sometimes they can grow to become a problem with branches, spikes and seeds dropping. High winds also increase the risk of flying palm spikes. Check out some pictures from just some of the challenging jobs we’ve managed around Omokoroa, Whakamarama, Tauranga and beyond.

This project included the dismantling of three large Phoenix palms and the pruning of two.
This large phoenix palm over a swimming pool in Matua was in need of a tidy up! This was it’s first-ever prune.
Prune in Otumoetai
By removing the lower fronds on a palm tree, not only does the appearance improve but more sunlight enters the garden which encourages the growth of surrounding plants. This super-high prune at an Otumoetai residence also makes the tree safer to work around.
Queen in Katikati
Palm trees offer great shade to gardens but the seeds can be a real menace for swimming pool owners. In Katikati, these three palms were dropping their seeds and causing problems with the filter, and the roots were beginning to crack the tiles around the pool.
