Looking for a gifted, kind, skilled and respectful arborist? Look no further than the Doctor. I had a conversation with Michael, of the Palm Tree Doctor, and realized he thoroughly enjoys his work. Much like the Mark Twain quote, “If you find a job you truly love, you will never work another day in your life.” I believe Mike is that guy and very dedicated to his work. So, if you have a palm tree not looking so good, the Palm Tree Doctor is the only MD to call! All the best Doc.

Doug and his team are great guys and a number of my neighbors also use him and they all have beautiful palms in their yards. I would recommend him to any one for any type of palm tree maintenance and diagnosis.

Mike came to put two very sick palm trees in my front yard under intensive therapy. He's shown immense care, love, passion, and professionalism in his trade and his job. I highly recommend him and his company.

Michael Spinelli came to my house and diagnosed two clumps of areca palms as having ganoderma. He insisted that I should not delay in cutting down these trees and remove the stumps. He said he has seen this many times and he was certain my trees were infected and it would spread to my other areca palms and kill them. I have 30 clumps of 13 year old areca palms on all three sides of my backyard around the pool. Ganoderma forms mushroom-like conks attached to the lower part of palms. There were no conks and there was no wilting of leaves which is another symptom. Four months ago, I called some Broward County master gardener office who said the only way to diagnose ganoderma on a palm without conks is to cut one down and see if the center of the lower section of the tree is rotting. It would have a dark color. Of course this would be the sensible thing to do before cutting down and removing all traces of roots for both clumps of palm trees. I found it very odd that Michael was so over the top insistent about his diagnosis. I didn't believe him. Four months later I had Doug Giles, the owner of the company, come out and he told me the trees did NOT have ganoderma. The only thing I can think of that would make Michael lie about a diagnosis is the fact that I'm very active in city and county politics and maybe he's friends with one of my political enemies. If I had followed his directions and replaced the palms behind my waterfall with black bamboo, I'd ruin the consistent look of my backyard and I'd be constantly removing leaves from my pool. I told Doug to call me and let me know what was going on after he had a chance to speak with Michael but I haven't heard back from him after a week. If Michael wasn't lying about the ganoderma diagnosis, then he must be the worst palm tree doctor in South Florida.

I live in North Miami. A couple of years ago, I hired Palm Tree Doc. Michael came to my house and did an excellent work on my palm trees deserving 5 stars....
