Troy Belt is the execution of a simple idea that serves a useful need.
Falling fronds from royal palms present continually challenging situations in many landscaped environments. The falling fronds often weigh up to 100 lbs and can be as large as 15 feet long. They present danger to passersby, cars, lower landscaping and property. They also cause the requirement for daily grounds maintenance crews who have to inspect the grounds and continually clean up the fallen fronds.
With the simple attachment of a Troy Belt around the crownshaft of a frond every challenging situation is solved.
The Troy Belt is an inexpensive, engineered and tested nylon strap specifically designed for placement around a royal palm frond collar.
The application of a Troy Belt to a royal palm is a much better solution than trimming the frond. This is because if the frond is trimmed, there is still the danger of a falling frond which can weigh up to 100 lbs!
The Troy Belt is the only solution which allows you to control and actually stop a frond from falling. This is important because tree maintenance is reduced to one periodic scheduled time when all fronds can be collected and a new Troy Belt can be installed.
The cost of sending a tree service expert up a palm usually exceeds $50 and provides no assurance of when a frond will fall. By spending a nominal amount on the Troy Belt, the money spent on this service is maximized because it will not be until the next service that you will have to pay attention to these palms.
Additionally, the Troy Belt is the only product approved by insurance companies to reduce your property insurance premium.
