Best Time To Trim Queen Palms and Why To Hire Professional.

Palm trees and sunshine paint a perfect picture of a lot of Central Florida. Whether it's traveling on the turnpike and passing stretches of palms or having a beautiful Queen Palm flourishing in your front yard, it's always a pleasant and classic sight to see. It adds a tropical touch to any home, and they don't require constant attention. But unlike trimming the hedges or cutting down some small branches, pruning your Queen Palm takes a professional touch. This is especially true if it's grown quite tall.

Trimming your Queen Palm isn't something that needs to be done frequently, though. Usually, it only needs to be done once or twice a year. It's obvious when it's time to prune the palm as it changes color to brown and dries out, leaving you with dead palm fronds. It's important to make sure you only have the branches trimmed when there is apparent decay. Pruning the fronds too early in anticipation of future trimming can damage your Queen Palm and living palm fronds could be snipped too soon.

Leaving a Queen Palm unkempt can be a safety hazard as well as an eyesore. It's important to know what you're doing when dealing with the more massive palms, which is why it is highly recommended to call a professional to come to trim up those hard to reach palm fronds. Hiring a professional ensures that the correct equipment will be used and safety will be one of the main concerns, as well as preserving the living Queen Palm.

If you're lucky enough to have a yard with one or more beautiful Queen Palm trees, make sure to keep them that way with annual maintenance. Contact us today if your branches are brown and covering more ground than hanging off the tree. Let us keep your yard looking like a tropical paradise!

What your neighbors say.

We hired All American Tractor and Tree to trim and shape the huge oak tree in our front yard. From the beginning of my experience to the end Jeff was on top of everything. He returned calls, kept appointments and let me know when the weather dictated a change in plans. The tree was encroaching on our house and needed to be trimmed back and lifted so the bottom limbs were not in our way and blocking the view from the street. They showed up on time, talked to me first then used their best judgement in doing the work. When I asked to have a little more trimmed from one section they were happy to do it and then, the best part...they cleaned up after themselves and did a great job. We can not stand having the tree in our front yard but at least now it is not a total eyesore. I can not thank Jeff and Tommie enough.

We found Jeff and Tom to be very professional, polite and conscientious in trimming and removing several trees in our yard. We were also pleased with the clean-up following their work and would highly recommend their services.

Called them in the AM. They happened to be in the area and removed two palms that afternoon. Price was competitive and they cleaned up everything to the point that we had nothing to do but enjoy the new view after the team left. It's great to find good customer service these days!

Jeff did a fantastic job on a huge oak tree that was between our house and our neighbors’. Cleaned up all the branches and hauled them away. It really put a facelift on our property. I would highly recommend them.

Jeff and Tommie’s expertise in removing a large patio elm made it look easy. They also explained their concerns about a limb that was rubbing on our roof, which I greatly appreciated their attention to detail and had it removed. We couldn’t be happier with their work! We’ve already discussed having them do more work.
