Palm Trees Dallas

Palm Trees Dallas have been growing more popular in recent years. Since the days of pink plastic flamingos in front of every house in the 1960s, they’ve been planted more and more. Even though they aren’t good for shade, something that is always helpful under the hot Dallas summer sun, the tropical feel they create is something that is desired by many.

The biggest question most people have is whether Palm Trees Dallas can survive the single digit temperatures of a Texas window. Although for many types of palm trees the answer is no, Tree Farm Dallas have a wide variety of palm trees available that are suitable for the local climate. These hardy trees include windmill palms, Mediterranean/European fan palms, California fan palms, pindo fan palms, Texas sabal palms, and Florida sabal palms.

Whether or not a weather resistant palm tree is a good idea depends on the reason it is being added to the landscape. Palm trees are more of a space filler or to be planted in a way to maximize their aesthetic effect. Because of their height and relatively small concentration of leaves that is centered around the trunk, they do not provide nearly as much shade as other trees.

Because of their fragile nature, it is important to get them off to a good start upon planting. Many make the mistake of burying a tree too deeply when they plant it and others are not sure of the proper amount of water a tree should receive. While there may be no readily apparent negative effects and the tree may appear to be thriving, underneath the roots may not be developing as strongly as they could. Come winter, when the tree is under greater stress, it may not be able to withstand the frigid temperatures.

To make sure this does not happen, it is a good idea to consult someone who is an expert in Tree Transplanting Dallas. They will be able to give advice on where to place the tree and they will put it in the ground properly. They will also be able to provide advice on the proper care of the tree so that it quickly establishes its roots and becomes a centerpiece for the surrounding landscape.
