Full House

I have recently noticed that it seems to be the season for giving palm trees haircuts. Monkey, the nickname for the man below wearing the white ball cap, climbing the palm, machete hanging from his belt, has been hanging off alot of trees lately. Monkey gave our palm tree a haircut last August, much to the dismay of a neighborhood who said.................... bats have been living in your palm tree for years, NOW where will they go? Well, most of them just came on inside the casa.A lush, fully loaded palm tree. You can see Monkey inside the branches. He stopped to pose for my camera.These are the four palms he cut this morning. We can see these from the hilton garden room. They look a little bare. Mucho corte de pelo (cut of hair).........i sure hope their bats don't come over here because we already have a full house.

That DOES look like a pretty radical haircut! I've seen the coconut-cutting guy at work, and that's a good thing, to prevent people from being beaned. But why would they cut back on what little shade a palm tree has to offer?

Woo - that IS a cut for sure!

Fellow arborists and I are trying to teach "Monkeys" here in Palm Springs to trim palms only up to the horizontal leaves as such drastic trimming has proven to weaken trunk strength over time. That drastic trimming is called paint brushing.
