As part of an annual palm-pruning program, the City’s contractor is pruning palms in parkways and parks throughout Coronado. Palm fruiting and hanging fronds are a common concern for residents. Both can occur simultaneously throughout town so the City must be diligent and coordinated in its work to remove both fruit and fronds.

The contractor began work on Monday, Oct. 7, in the Cays and will work toward the east side of Orange Avenue. From there, the contractor will start work on the west side Orange and expects to finish palm pruning by the end of January. Public Services appreciates the patience of residents as the contractor works on a street by street basis. Diverting from this plan can cause palms to get missed. No parking signs may appear on short notice when the contractor has been able to get ahead of schedule. When this happens, the City appreciates residents’ quick response in moving vehicles out of the contractor’s path so the work can be completed.

The contractor has two crews of up to three people each with one supervisor. They work in white and yellow trucks. Queen palms take longer to prune than most other palms.
