Palm Skirt Collapse

Palm Skirt

We had a palm skirt collapse on us today. I was doing the trimming, and I knew it was going to happen so we got it on video. Fortunately I was working from out lift and not with spikes on the tree. IF I had been climbing, I likely would have been killed by all the fronds falling down on me. They suffocate you! Look at the video and imagine being up under it and tied to the trunk of the palm. Yikes!

This is why nobody should ever climb a palm with a large number of dead fronds hanging on it. Better to pass on a job than pay with your life!
