The most common palm tree in Sydney is the Cocos palm. Cocos palms produce large volumes of fruit each year, the fruit attracts pests such as possums, bats, rats and certain birds which create mess with their droppings, apart from that the palm fruit itself is extremely messy when it collects on the ground. Cocos palms also drop dead fronds each year.
Different types of Palm cleaning options do exist – they are listed from least expensive to most expensive.
1) Remove only pods, fruit and flowers
2) Remove pods, flowers, fruit, husks and dead fronds
3) Remove pods, flowers, fruit, husks, dead fronds & some live fronds
Some clients wisely choose to have seedpods removed before they open and produce flowers and fruit. This option can be very effective as whilst the pods remain unopened there is significantly less waste requiring removal plus the stage where the fruit begins to make a mess and attract pests is avoided altogether.
For the most part clients call us once the fruit has already ripened.
