Before and after

We had our gigantic palm tree trimmed last week.

Before (actually in the midst) I couldn't find a photo of a true "before" - but those fronds hung down nearly to the ground



And after



It's weird looking now! The neighbor's pool was filling up with palm crap so it was time to trim it.

Does it make coconuts?

How cool to have a palm tree!

That does look weird. They trimmed it too much, like over-plucking the eyebrows. Well, it'll grow back...

That's amazing! Did it cost a bazillion bucks to have it trimmed?

Hey - that was the best part! Our neighbor, whose pool was a mess as a result of the tree, paid to have it trimmed. I offered to pay 1/2 but he declined.

When we lived on Guam, we had to knock the coconuts out of the palm trees before any typhoon (no matter how far away.) My husband used to laugh because he had to clear the coconuts out of the yard before he could mow.

It's nice to meet you, too.

Great work.
