Palm tree hanging over fireplace..


Mature palms can get pretty pricey. Over here, the landscape companies/nurseries with the capabilities to deal with something that size buy them from homeowners, AND clean up after themselves to make it look as if the ground was never touched. Whenever I get a call to remove something bigger than I can handle, I call in the big boys.

For me, craigslist would be a last resort. Start with the phonebook. Make a few bucks.

Call and ask how much they pay (not if they pay) for a mature palm.

..maybe do a trade with a company if they remove that one and put a new smaller one in?
That should be very easily negotiated.

Should i look for a certain type of palm to put there? So i wouldn't have this issue again?
Samoan coconut is nice. I've rarely seen cocnuts on them higher than about 8ft. They're really nice trees, and the cocos won't be high enough to cause concern.

Bottle palms would be anothewr great choice. They mature at about ten feet. They look great lining a driveway as well, planted in line at 8-10 feet apart.
