Palm trees come in all shapes and sizes and vary from one property to the next. As a result, the costs of palm tree trimming Las Vegas range significantly. Let’s discuss the factors you’ll need to consider for pricing and the best way to keep your palm trees healthy and vibrant.
Several factors come into play for palm tree trimming costs. A professional trimming company will consider the type of palm tree you have, its size, and the number of needs needing removal. Realistically, prices can range from $100 to $1,000 to trim a palm tree in Las Vegas.
Here is an average breakdown of costs:
- Small Palms 10-15 Feet: Expect to pay around $100 for palm tree trimming on a tree this size. Some companies will bundle packages if you have multiple trees on your property.
- Medium Palms 15-25 Feet: Medium palm trees are the most common palm tree size. Based on other factors, you can expect to spend anywhere from $150 to $400 for trees this size.
- Large Palms 25-40 Feet: Larger trees obviously cost more to trim. For example, a 30-foot palm can start at $200 or more.
- Extra Large Palms 50 Feet or Taller: Extra-large palm trees are more difficult to trim because you’ll need larger equipment and safety gear to reach significant heights safely. Some trees will need an elevated work platform that requires multiple professionals to engage and secure. A single, regular palm tree this size costs anywhere from $300 to $600 to trim.
Of course, all these prices represent the average cost of palm tree trimming Las Vegas. Prices do vary widely, with location and accessibility significantly impacting the overall costs.
Do Professional Palm Tree Trimming Companies Charge by the Hour?
Palm tree trimming companies do not typically charge by the hour. Instead, they charge by the job. You may also invest in an annual maintenance program which includes routine tree trimming. For further information, see our guide on When is the Best Time of Year To Trim Palm Trees.
How Are Palm Trees Trimmed?
Palm trees must be trimmed very carefully by a professional tree trimmer to ensure they don’t die. Palms are trimmed by removing dead fronds. You cannot cut directly into the trunk or cut the top off a palm tree if you want it to live. Instead, you must cut fronds before the trunk line to remove dead branches. Cutting them too close to the palm line will prevent fronds from regenerating and leave you with a dead palm.
Palm trees flower annually and grow large seed pods that can create a mess in your yard. Therefore, getting a price for tree frond removal and seed or flower pods is a good idea. Typically, it costs between $50-100 to remove fruit, depending on the tree size.
