Cape Coral Mast Trees – Wholesale
If you’re looking for tall, column-like evergreen trees for your Cape Coral landscaping project to fill in for the temperamental Italian Cypress, you’ll find wholesale Mast Trees at Palmco that are an excellent substitute!
Why Choose Mast Trees?
Italian Cypress trees struggle to grow in South Florida because of the rain and high humidity. The climate makes them more susceptible to root rot, fungus, spider mites, and cypress canker disease, which causes the trees to develop brown patches and die back.
Mast Trees, sometimes called False Ashoka, have become the preferred choice of knowledgeable Cape Coral landscape contractors, architects and developers who need similar tall, slender trees to provide excellent vertical accents in their landscape projects.
The attention-getting Polyalthia longifolia ‘Pendula,’ is fairly new to Florida grower production. The Indian and Sri Lankan native grows to 30 to 45 feet tall by 4 to 5 feet wide at maturity with a straight, thin trunk (used to build ship masts), and layers of feathery, wavy-edged leaves that hang from drooping branches.
The Mast Tree’s lush foliage ranges from coppery brown when new, to light lime green, to a glossy dark green as the trees age. Leaves remain on the tree in all seasons, almost completely covering the trunk and creating an eye-catching and colorful focal point. In the spring or summer, they also produce star-like pale green flowers that attract butterflies and birds.
When landscaping luxury residential properties, resort hotels, golf courses, and other locations in South Florida, tall and narrow Mast Trees can be used to line avenues and driveways, as tall hedges, as architectural accents, and as privacy, noise and windbreak screens.
These evergreen trees have very little leaf drop, no pest issues of note, and require little to no maintenance. They prefer well-drained soil, will grow in full sun or partial shade, and are drought-tolerant when mature.
The Mast Tree is a spectacular tropical substitute for the Italian Cypress. For the best results, plant them in Zones 10a to 11, or from coastal Hillsborough County southward on Florida’s west coast and Indian River County southward on the east coast.
