Palm Sculpting and Shaving Adelaide
The act of palm sculpting and shaving is performed to remove the dead debris of each palm frond that is left behind as the palm grows taller and produces new palm fronds. Adelaide Palm and Tree Removals are highly competent at sculpting and shaving palms. Take a look at some of the before and after photos. The practice of palm sculpting and shaving is relatively common though is not advisable to be undertaken by anyone lacking in the appropriate skills to rid the palm of the correct amount of residual palm tree fronds. Palm trees are monocots which means that once grown to full circumference capacity they do not continue to have outward growth. They just grow upwards by producing new bands of palm fronds. You will have appreciated how attractive a freshly sculpted and shaved palm tree is, but it is vitally important not to over prune a palm as this can weaken the palm, slow its growth or even cause its death. The growth of a new frond is partnered by the death of an old frond and this natural growth pattern should be allowed to proceed and presents reason enough why palm sculpting and shaping should be left to the experts. Adelaide Palm and Tree Removals also offer their services and expertise in trimming pine trees along with many other tree species. They are trusted by local councils, schools and many home owners as the leading choice.

Tree Climbers and Tree Lopping Equipment
Tree climbing is necessary for tall tree work to lop the tree from the top down, in smaller quantities. This is done effectively using a climbing rigging system and harness along with a rope and pulley system to safely transport the cut tree pieces to the ground. The scene from the movies where the lumberjack cuts the tree off at the base and yells out ‘timber’ isn’t going to work in the suburbs of Adelaide. Tree climbing is like an exact science. It requires an experienced and skilled, able bodied person to manipulate the rigging system as well as make a good job of lopping the tree. Once lopped, the branches and trunk can be chipped in to bark chips and mulch or if suitable, we can agree to offer it for sale as firewood. We are able to provide the correct machinery and tools of trade to facilitate these jobs, such as cherry pickers, state of the art Stihl chainsaws, chippers and stump grinders for the left over stump to be ground down and fully disposed of. We can also provide a light crane on a flat bed truck. Our services, equipment and knowledge are second to none. We can access tight areas for hard to remove stumps and our customer service level extends to leaving a site in the best possible state, with our unquestionable assurance of an immaculate clean up. We are adept in emergency attendance in all manner of weather, especially clean-up of storm damaged branches, dangerous trees and tree limbs. We are able to effect the appropriate chain of action with trees over electricity wires or roads as well as remove tree limbs that are interfering with guttering, roofs and windows.

Another Before and After
Removing a Tree
Do you have a large tree in your yard? Large palms are in high demand.
You may have seen a lot of the major roadworks in, going out towards Mawson Lakes, and also around West Lakes. Or at the end of jetty road in Glenelg. These are all established palms that have been found growing, most likely in people's private yards, and transplanted by a fully trained professional.
Adelaide Palm Tree Relocation
You'll find it easier to sell your palm if you know the variety and size. Identifying your palm is not always easy, so as a suggestion, take a photo of your palm and send it in to us here at Home Giraffe. We can identify it and put you in touch with the right contractor.
The advanced phoenix canariensis, commonly known as the Canary island date palm is the palm most commonly sought after palm here in Adelaide. But other likely varieties include the Washington Antonia (filiphera) and the Washington Robusta (Cotton Palm). Use google images with these three varieties to help identify which palm you have. Please note, Robert can offer great advice on these, BUT HE IS NOT IN THE MARKET FOR BUYING PALMS. He is the best in Adelaide at relocation, shaving, sculpting and lopping trees, but NOT CURRENTLY IN THE MARKET FOR BUYING PALMS.
Transplanting your palms
If you are looking to buy established palms, it is of the utmost importance you hire a professional. Whilst these trees can be transplanted with high success, there is still a failure rate if the delivery and condition of the tree is substandard. The trees must also be planted and watered to a specific standard, and the soil must be prepared adequately.
