    Question

    I don't suppose they'd be able to get a crane close enough to it to lift it, right? Otherwise you might find they'd be prepared to buy it from you as there are always a demand for larger palm trees.

    Thanks for all the feedback, busy getting quotes. Best so far R4k and worst R11k, and both are very professional and fully insured.

    I've advertised the tree on Gumtree last year (for free) and phoned a couple of tree nurseries and no interest, it will be too expensive to remove.

    OK, I know it depends on the location and the type of palm it is. A guy by the name of Patrick Gruijters did a very good job on two large pines for me several years ago. I know he lives in Sunningdale, but I can't remember the name of his company and I don't get any hits with his name when I google it with tree felling, so I'm not sure if he's still in the business.

    Did you manage to get it removed? You said you posted in Gumtree. When theres new developments like malls etc, they will buy from you, and remove.....
