I suppose if I had thought about it I would have realized that somewhere on this planet had to be a place that had palm tree nurseries.  Today we found them!

Kathy & I are in south Florida and decided to head out to Biscayne National Park near Homestead.  On our way there and back we passed dozens of palm tree nurseries, covering thousands of acres or more.  I shot a few examples of them on the way, but it was amazing to see the sheer number of palm trees – of all sizes and types – being grown all in one place!

  1. I never thought of there being nurseries for palm trees. I learned something new today! A few years ago while driving along the coast of Washington I noticed several tree farms. Something new to me. I was not impressed by them. Nature is chaotic in its growth while man plant rows of trees that seem to be too orderly and static. I can’t even come up the words to express how that looked to me. I see that here also.

    1. South Carolina, Georgia and northern Florida have a lot of replanted pine timberland, and it often takes on a “too orderly” look. While most of the rows here are neat and straight, the randomness of the different kinds of trees makes it more interesting!
