Actually it's not so much pruning as de-seeding.
Palms are lovely trees, especially around a pool. Unfortunately they do have one major fault; they produce seeds by the thousand which if left on the trees will drop into the water. They need to be removed.
I have no idea how tall this particular tree is, but it requires a three-piece ladder to reach the top where the huge bunches of seeds are to be found.
The job is achieved thanks to a branch lopping saw blade which is attached to a long pole. Even at the top of the ladder I needed the extra metre or more that the handle offered.
And here are the culprits. Huge bunches of seeds; which if sown will easily produce small palm trees.
A nice job for an early Sunday morning; very satisfying when completed.
