Mature Palm Tree!
In my backyard I have a large palm tree 11′ tall, from base to crown, that could be removed and transplanted. Although it is only 11′ in height, the trunk is 2′ in diameter . I’m not sure how old it is but it’s obviously mature. You will need to excavate the tree from my backyard.
Trunk diameter: 2′
Approx height: 11′
Today on Sparky Does Science and Stuff, we are going to guess the weight of an 11-foot palm tree with a 2-foot diameter trunk. Also, we will plot the best way to get an excavator into a small residential back yard, and how much damage to the landscaping Sparky will put up with. Extra points for taking out part of the structure, especially the roof, while backing out with the tree.
