Palm trees coming back


After a hard winter in all parts of the state, Florida's palm trees are coming back!

We had a palm in our yard that took a hit during the last cold snap. The one in your photo looks better than mine.

So glad to hear they were healthy enough to begin with. Perhaps a more stressed tree would not have made it back.

Had they flown to a gentler climate?

Lol: word verification: gators

They are so big - here we can grow them only as pot plants, which obviously is complicated in winter unless on has really big place:)

Ahh poor babies. Nice to see the green again. Will someone clip out the dead parts? MB

I would like a palm-tree in my garden, but not the high temperature ;-)

It's happening the same here. I've never seen palm trees, cacti and other succulents (Yuccas, Agaves, Aloes, etc.) so damaged as in this past winter!

I am not a great fan of palm trees...maybe because I have not been around them much. But there is something either about this one or the way you took the photo that I really like.

Gorgeous trees and nice to see they are going through! I like the angle of your picture.

the poor fronds, someone should climb up there & cut the dead ones off so that the nutrients will travel to the greener parts of the tree!
