Mast Trees Bradenton, Florida – Wholesale
Wholesale Mast Trees from Palmco will thrive in your Bradenton, Florida environment and are an excellent solution when you need a vertical accent for your client’s landscape.
When landscaping resort hotels, luxury residential properties, shopping centers, and golf courses in Manatee County, landscapers, architects and designers have few options for tall, narrow columnar trees that provide beautiful evergreen foliage. The Italian Cypress, a common choice, is prone to spider mites and fungal disorders in South Florida.
Consider the Polyalthia longifolia ‘Pendula’ or Mast Tree. It’s tall (30 to 45 feet), slender (4 to 5 feet wide when full-grown), evergreen, grows symmetrically, and is an excellent tropical substitute for the Italian Cypress.
Mast Trees have layers of feathery, wavy-edged leaves that hang from drooping branches and closely hug the trunk. As they mature, the beautiful contrast of new golden, coppery brown leaves against light lime green and older dark-green leaves makes a spectacular show. For a brief period in spring, they bloom with masses of light green, star-shaped flowers.
To get maximum enjoyment from your Mast Trees, plant them in full or partial sun in rich clay, loam or sandy soils, and make sure the soil is well-drained. Mature Mast Trees are moderately drought-tolerant and salt-tolerant.
Landscaping with Mast Trees
Mast Trees will transform any plain landscape. Their dense foliage, soft texture and tall, symmetrical shape, makes them popular with landscape architects and designers for framing entryways, covering vertical drain-pipes, softening corners and vertical edges, and even as elegant property dividers.
- Mast Trees provide an excellent vertical accent for privacy screening, shade and windbreaks, and are great in narrow spaces. Line avenues, driveways, pathways or patios with them to highlight entryways and linear landscape features.
- Plant Mast Trees to create a natural privacy fence. They make a much more attractive barrier than a wood fence and don’t take up much more space. Remember that they will grow to about 4 to 5 feet wide when mature, and plant accordingly.
- Use Mast Trees as architectural accents. Set them against tall buildings to soften their look. Plant one on either side of a gate or entrance. Place them directly in the ground or plant them in large containers.
- If the property you are landscaping is adjacent to highways, intersections or commercial businesses, Mast Trees can serve as an effective noise pollution barrier without diminishing the aesthetics of the property.
