Perhaps you can ask the Architectural Review Committee when you submit your request to remove the palm trees if they have references?

Not everyone has to get permission. I took out 10. Didn't need ARC approval. You do have to know what the deed restrictions are for your home.

I've heard something similar to what NJ posted, trees with a trunk bigger than 4" need ARC approval, then I've heard it doesn't if they are Palms because they are classified as a grass. I've also heard there is a $500 fine if you remove without approval. I think I would check with ARC for be safe. Here are some older threads that may be helpful.

We have been very happy with Michael's tree and Stump Grinding-licensed and insured.
(352)504-1597.
We did not need permits. Mike would know if it is needed.
He took down two queen palms for us-very reasonable

If you are in the Lake County portion of the villages, there is a specific list of licensed tree removal firms, it was in the daily sun within the last week.

I agree with above, double check with ARC just to be sure about the removal of the palms.

In any case, check with Seniors against crime for any firms that you are thinking of using, there are several fly by night firms that prey on villagers.

Friend's deed restrictions there also specify how many and what type of trees must be planted on property. They learned about that the hard way!

There is a company that will remove it and actually buy the palm from you. A neighbor used them recently. I'll see if I can get their information next time I see him.

Try looking up "We Buy Palms"./

Last year I had WISE tree service remove queen palm. It was probably 35 ft. high and 15 inch base. They was quick, clean, and done good job at fair price IMO. I would get at least 3 estimates from licensed tree service to get fair pricing. I called arc, last Year they said palms are not considered shade tree so no approval required. Won't hurt to call and make sure though.
