Palm Trees BEFORE, DURING and AFTER

Here are our Mexican Fan and Queen Palm trees BEFORE we had them trimmed:



DURING the trimming the professional tree trimmer wore a face mask to protect his mouth and nose from the dust and debris found in the dead, hanging palm fronds.



Even with the bucket truck, some trees were too tall to reach the top of.  So the trimmer put on shoe spikes and a harness and climbed the rest of the way up.  Seeing him so high up there made me dizzy!



Again a comparison:  The picture below is BEFORE trimming.


And the picture below is a few weeks AFTER trimming.  Without all the dead fronds you can actually see the trees.  And they are stunning!  


Nothing says "Los Angeles" more than palm trees.  And I love ours.
