Palm Trimming Estimates by Tree Size

Small Palm 10 – 15 feet palm trim

Expect to pay $60 – $75 for a single palm tree trim on average. If you had more than one palm tree that needed trimming, it would cost less per palm. You might pay somewhere in the range of $230 to prune five (5) palm trees.

Medium Palm 15 – 25 feet palm trim

This would be an ‘average tree’ when it comes to height. You can expect to pay $100 for a single tree and $400 for up to five trees.

Large Palm 25 – 40 feet palm prune

The cost to trim a 30-foot palm tree would be about $200. There will be a discount for multiple trees but the size of the tree is a lot more work for pruning.

X Large Palm – 50 feet or taller palm prune

These massive palm trees will likely need an elevated work platform to carry out the pruning.

A single regular palm tree this size will usually cost anywhere from $300-$600 for a single tree pruned.

This is a fairly wide price range because the location and accessibility can vary, greatly affecting the overall cost.

Affordable Palm tree trimming near me

Finding an affordable palm trimming service near you can be tough at times. You can do a few things to increase your odds of a good deal.

  1. Look on page two of Google – Websites don’t show up at the top of page one of Google by accident. Companies spend a lot of money to be there. They also charge higher prices to recoup their marketing costs.
  2. Dispose of waste yourself – Half the cost of palm tree trimming and removal comes from waste disposal, as it can not be shredded like other timber. Ask for a quote with and without the removal of debris.
  3. Free palm tree trimming – Some companies offer large discounts or even free palm tree trimming for veterans or seniors. Ask around local associations for recommendations before getting estimates from local services.
