|Sell your palm|
Most of our large nursery stock was acquired through barter on landscape projects but we also buy and “rescue” mature palms.
To market your palm tree you must first determine the variety. You can do this by looking up the palm in a book or checking out our list of palms following this section. To a novice, most palms may look alike, if you are confused, give us a call. Palms are typically sold by the “trunk foot” or the height measured from the ground to the center of the crown (where the green fronds originate).
Once you know the species of the palm and the height, you can start to determine if your palm has market value. Here’s where things get confusing. The tree must be accessible, the larger the tree the more access required. The cost of removing the palm is deducted from the determined value, if tree removal necessitates heavy equipment, repair of underground utilities or site restoration, these costs can quickly devalue even a valuable palm. Your best bet is to give us a call, we will be happy to access your situation.
As mentioned, most of our large nursery stock was acquired through trade in plant material or services, so if you are looking to renovate an old landscape, give us a call, we may be willing to trade out existing palms for new trees or tree maintenance on existing trees.
Following is a list of palms of varying value; again, the value of a palm is directly affected by cost of removal, condition of the tree etc.
