Question Palm tree question, bamboo palm

I recently purchased a bamboo palm and the stems are braking off or shedding its bark. Can I take this off from the whole plant. The shedding makes it look raggedy. There are also blue seeds coming from the plant's orange stem, if my dog where to eat the seeds, would he get sick? I had to take out some sago palm trees from my yard when I found out some of the seeds weren't good for my dog, that's why I ask.

Arrow Question about Canary Island Date Palm

I have two canary island date palms in the front entrance of my home that need to be removed and placed in the back yard. The canaries are blocking the view to the canal and my wife doesnt like it. If I remove them will they die? How do I go about it? I have a forklift which can pull it out of the ground , but I am weary about the trunk breaking, should I dig the palm out or can I yank it out? Does anyone know a good service in the Houston area that knows about yanking these things out of the yard without killin em? One of the canaries is about 20 feet tall and the other about 30 feet tall and they have been there for about two years.

Default EL Paso got hit hard by the winter

My yard looks completely dead. I passed by at least a 1000 dead palm trees on my way to work every morning. Are palm trees supposed to survive this climate and if they are why did they all die? El Paso hasnt been hit from a freeze like that in over 50 years and the freeze lasted over three days straight. What palm trees would be able to survive cold temperatures?

@ rodeo man I live in Huston Texas, I am not a palm tree expert but I can tell you from bad experience thatís not a good idea. I was in a similar situation not to long ago wife was giving me crap about the same thing. Seems like when you married the old lady just want to run everything, gives us a break. I had someone come with a crane out of Dallas Texas, the reassured me that they where experts at it. Long story short they tried pulling it out without digging around and destroyed my palm! Maybe the area that you live in Texas the soil is a bit softer. Just say I slept on the couch for a whole week. So if you want to avoid the uncomfortable couch dig around! Would like to here how things go, right me back when you accomplish it. Texas bull rider out, good luck by the way!

Default El Paso really did get hard but we did as well

I recently went up to El Paso for a business trip and I can tell you one thing... It looks like all the palms are dead all along the street. Some places even have names called palm centre, palm place, palm expo, they all have dead palms. I feel bad for all the businesses in the area that built their business off the name of palms.

Default I also remove dead palms, trees, and boulders

If anyone has questions on the way to remove dead palms and the associated cost of removing dead palms, please let me know. Each project is different and depending on the type of crane which you will be using will determine the cost of removing the dead palms. Also where the palms are located on the property also make a large difference.

Default I live near the Sunland Park Shopping Center in EL Paso

I have 4 dead California fan palm trees in my front yard and 5 California fan palms in my rear yard. A total of 9 dead palms out of 13 that I have. The dead palms in the front yard are about 20 feet tall and the dead palms in the back are 25 feet tall. How much will it cost to0 remove these dead palms and replace them with some medjool palms or canary island date palms?

Default Sure I can do your landscaping for the Sunland area

I do some yards in that area maybe I pass by your home and I can give you a price. Its really hard to tell you the price of the removing if I do not see it, but maybe 100 dollars per tree and then 20 dollars a month for maintenance. Just send me an email with your address and tell me the best time to come by.

Default I sent you an email via this forum with my address

The best time for you to come by is after 6 pm to 8 pm... I understand you cannot give me certain prices for each palm tree I just needed a roundabout number so I can do some due diligence. Are there palm trees that do well in the cold time. I dont want to lose any more palms if I buy new ones to replace the dead ones. The dead palms came with the house when I bought it, but I was definitely attached to them. They are beautiful to look at.

Default canary island date palm

Well, only one canary island date palm made it from the removal process. I had two canaries growing in the front yard and my wife didnt want them there anymore so we moved them and only one lived to tell the tale.... I removed them with a forklift and the tallest one came crashing down and split down the middle and broke the concrete sidewalk. It was fantastic to watch but terrible to clean up.

Default Wow, I'm glad no one got hurt

Thats a big palm to bring down. When we bring down big palms we bring them down pieces at a time. and we tie each piece before we cut it so that we can lower it down. Thats the best way to bring down large palm trees.

Question Does anyone know the palms that are on the billboard on I10

There are a couple of billboards on I10 near Sunland Park mall and they have large palm trees on them? Does anyone know what type of palm trees they are?
