Maintenance & Trimming
Once the palm reaches 30 feet in height they typically drop their old leaf bases within a year or two. Once this occurs, the tree becomes “self-cleaning” and do not require manual removal of old leaves. However, there will be dead fronds persisting at the crown until they fall during that one to two year period.
The California Fan Palm (Washingtonia Filifera), and the Mexican Fan Palm (Washingtonia Robusta) cross breed to form the Hybrid Fan Palm (Washingtonia Filibusta), read the full profile here.
The Mexican Fan Palm hybridizes with the Washingtonia Filifera, or the California Fan Palm. However, the Mexican Fan Palm is better suited for the east coast. Overall, the Mexican Fan Palm is more suited to moister climates while the W. Filifera is a true desert species that is more resistant to cold snaps provided conditions are dry. It is thought that the hybrid between the Mexican Fan Palm (the Washingtonia Robusta) and the California Fan Palm (the Washingtonia Filifera), the Filibusta, should grow fairly well in cooler climates with wet winters, combining the moisture resistance of the W. Robusta and the W Filifera. Examples in the United States include Oregon and Washington. There is a lot of misconceptions about palm tree survival and plant hardiness. We suggest reading David A. Franckos “Palms Won’t Grow Here and Other Myths: Warm-Climate Plants for Cooler Areas” to help guide you in incorporating palms and other species into your garden or landscape.
Get your Palm Tree
3 SIMPLE STEPS
STEP 2 : Opt for Delivery
Delivery is not required in any of your orders, you can arrange your own transportation. If you prefer the palm tree delivered at your location, you can choose between two different methods depending on the size and amount of trees: the semi-truck or our local/in-house transportation.
STEP 3 : Opt for Installation
The massive root ball attached to the base of the trunk requires the use of a crane in most cases. Depending on the type/size of tree it is possible to handle the palm tree without a crane. Date Palm Trees above 3' tall, California Fan Palms above 4' tall and Mexican Fan Palms above 7' require machinery.
