Selling Mature Palm Trees

I have just bought a new PPOR and there are two (massive) Royal Palms and unfortunately they are to close to the house and cause all sorts of issues. It seems such a shame to lop them.

Is there a market for selling them at all, as they are beautiful trees?
 
Can't help much, but if you do find out let me know. I've got dozens of various sized palm trees I want to get rid of.

I have heard that the council may sometimes want a few for their landscaping, but I haven't pursued it yet.
 
That's why I keep a chainsaw: To get rid of royal palms. :(

A frond from a royal fell onto the aerial electricity feed to the house over the road and it took 24 hrs to reconnect. The tree is STILL there though. The owner is too tight to care about his tenants.
 
Let me know too. I have heaps of golden cane palms and Maybe cocos palms in Bris about 9 yrs old I want to get rid of too.
 
I'm pretty sure you can sell them off. I'll try and remember to talk to my boss, he had one massive one on his property that he got rid of and I think he sold it to a company or something...anyway, I'll try and remember to ask tomorrow
 
Bet 'ya can't sell 'em. If they are as big as you say they will cost heaps to get rid of. The more you delay, the more it will cost.

As I said: Own a chain saw.
 
One of my neighbors had someone approach him about buying his palm tree, he was then going to export it to Japan. he was making about $10k per tree after costs but the deal didn't go ahead as the government stopped the guy from exporting anymore.
 
Can be big money in palm trees. There's a lot of demand for mature ones because they take so long to grow.

A palm tree seller told me that one we had which was as high as the house (pretty big) was worth about $5k.
 
Hi, I've done that before but the tree was a huge Phoenix Palm.
The tree looked beautiful but it was too close to the house.
There were a lot of (big) birds nesting on it so the Council approved a transplant on health hazard basis. I advertised it on Trade-A-Plant web-site (I think someone has posted this link already). A company drove a truck all the way from Vic to NSW. They hired local digging equipment and a crane, took away the tree and paid me $300. They broke the fence in the process though ! I heard that they had made arrangement with a few other sellers and in that trip, they took back with them few other trees in addition to mine. According to the buyer, he would plant them in his farm, groom them to a high standard then sell to clubs, casinos, goverment buildings etc...

Hi Poidda, you might like to give David on 0427849679 a call. We are west of Brisbane and he was sussing out some palms that are in a "sold" property across the road from our office a few weeks ago.

I recently used a company called cheappalms.com.au based in Brisbane, they came out to asses the size and price and managed to buy it from me. I also found out that they sell palms in smaller sizes and was blown away by the price and service of this company definitely recommend these guys.
