What type of palm should I choose?
- Frank A.
In general four factors should be considered when choosing a palm tree for your property. The first factor is the size of the tree at maturity. Remember that the little palm for sale at a local nursery might reach a height of 50 feet or more as an adult tree overpowering the rest of your property, interfering with overhead lines and underground conduits and perhaps, threatening buildings if the tree is planted too nearby. Make sure that the size of your palm at maturity is in keeping with your needs and overall landscape design.
