The property owner does not do the minimum of trimming her sabal palms to keep rats out of her trees. There are 18 palm trees that extend well over her property line that she has not trimmed in close to 3 years. Because of her negligence the trees are over run with rats which run havoc once the sun sets. She says that trimming fronds is harmful to the trees, so are rats. Though she keeps the two palm trees on either side of her front door perfectly manicured. She hired a arborist to say "there are no rats". He is completely unethical because there are an abundance of rats. She then paid him to plant bamboo. Treasure Island is a beautiful place that does not need an abundance of rats for the tourism. She should trim them once a year. And it should be a real trim job not just the dead fronds.
