Last Friday the crew at Branching Out Tree Care joined forces with Pete’s Treeworx to remove 3 large palms near Mandurah’s Atrium Hotel near Dolphin Quay. Unfortunately, these beautiful palms had been set on fire in the early hours of the morning and could not be saved. Using a cherry picker, loader and HIAB crane the team made short work of the palms, getting very dirty in the process!
On a more serious note, we have seen several palms set on fire over the last year or so in the Mandurah area. This is an extremely dangerous activity and usually results in damage to nearby walls and windows. If you have been a victim of palm arson, it is very important to report it to the police. Even if your house isn’t damaged, your insurance should cover the removal of the palm.
