There's some kind of oil in palm trees that will just ruin a chainsaw under the chain cover. You have to be careful about buying used saws from palm infested areas.

We do a lot of palm and yucca removal jobs and my guys break down the saws and spray LPS or wd40 on the side covers/case at the end of the day. It's shocking how quickly the palm juice corroded the magnesium if you don't clean them after each use. Nasty stuff!

Dave, we use climbing spurs (spikes) on the palms if inaccessible with a lift.  There's a fungus called Fusarium Blight in the Phoenix palms here and the main way it is spread is from tree to tree is climbing spurs or from chainsaws/Handsaws. After pruning one of these Palms the chainsaws (tools) have to be broken down and disenfected with Clorox or like.  Cost to replace one of the specimen phoenix palms can be more than $30,000 so it's high stakes pruning if you are careless and infect someone's tree.

The wood is like oriented strand corn broom. 

But the strands clog up the saw and there is silica all infused withing the strands. The chain dulls quickly.

I think you can see the blue nylon topped bee net on his head. Got stung 4 times before we sent up the bee net.
