Cape Coral Wholesale Palm Trees
When you are ready to add the striking silhouettes of palm trees to your customer’s landscape, check out Palmco’s Cape Coral wholesale palm trees to discover some of the most spectacular species.
With over 600 acres in production on Palm Island, Florida, we are one of the largest palm plantations in North America. In addition to the 40-plus varieties of choice palms Palmco offers, we pride ourselves on our environmentally conscious growing process and outstanding customer service that is recognized throughout the industry.
To ensure that we provide you with the healthiest specimens, we have implemented state-of-the-art irrigation and fertilization systems. They work together with our soil moisture monitoring stations to nourish the trees and prevent impurities from leaching into the surrounding soil and groundwater. We do not use restricted-use chemicals, and we recycle all plant waste and by-products into mulch for use on palm tree beds. This helps us reduce our water usage and improve the soil for future generations.

Differences in Palm Trees
Most palm trees can be differentiated by the shape of their leaves, with the most common shapes being pinnate and palmate. Pinnate leaves, also called feather leaves, generally have two rows of leaflets that look like feathers on each side of the stem. Palmate leaves, also called fan leaves, have leaflets that radiate from the base of the leaf. They resemble an opened hand with fingers radiating out from the palm. Cold-hardy palms generally have palmate leaves. While these are the primary two shapes, there are other variations, including costapalmate, bipinnate, simple, bifid, or in some instances a completely irregular leaf shape.
Sometimes palm trees can also be differentiated by trunk type.
The three main types are a “solitary trunk”, a “clustered trunk” (they grow in a cluster of thinner single trunks), and “no trunk” (it looks like they are growing directly out of the ground, but they have a short, or mostly underground, trunk).
Some palm tree trunks are smooth with barely any sign of old leaves, while others have trunks covered in old leaf scars, interwoven fibers and scales. Most palm tree trunks are thin, but can also become very thick based on their overall mass.
Not all palms grow in tropical or subtropical climates.
Some species grow only in specific places in the world and may prefer shade or full sun, and a humid or dry climate. Although they thrive in warm climates, some of the cold-hardy species can grow in climates that dip to 20°F, and some can survive even colder weather at 0°F or below.
The size and species of palm tree you choose will depend on your customer’s budget (small palms cost less, big palms cost more), aesthetics (can they wait for it to grow, or do they want a mature tree?), and maneuverability (large, mature palms usually have to be moved by crane to the site).
