Specialized Palm Tree Removal in Palm Beach, Broward and Martin County

Whether you have a tall or short palm tree, most palm species have extensive root structures hidden below the soil and numerous thin roots extend into the ground. If you have a palm tree that was recently diseased or damaged, it is typically cut down to a stump for removal. You should have the stump removed and the attached roots to improve the soil structure for future planting in the area.

Thick palm trunk bases need significant soil removal to detach the root system. Extremely large palm tree stumps may require a backhoe for removal. Although expensive, using heavy machinery for palm removal is the fastest way to detach both the stump and root system at once. Hire a professional operator to strategically remove the stump without harm to your surrounding property. Do not rent or operate a piece of heavy machinery without the proper training and background.

They are generally poorly attached and can slide down on you and crush you. Leave them to the experts.
