Mast Trees Fort Lauderdale – Wholesale
Looking for wholesale Mast Trees to enhance your Fort Lauderdale landscape with something out of the ordinary? You’ll find them at Palmco!
Palmco assists landscape contractors, architects and developers with everything they need to beautify a resort, golf course, commercial properties, residential estates and more, by providing large tree transplants and specimen trees throughout the country and worldwide.
Established in 1984 on Pine Island, Florida, we have over 600 acres of the choicest palms, bamboos, and ornamental plants that range from the most abundant and widely used to the rare and exotic.
One that may sound exotic is the Mast Tree, or Polyalthia longifolia “Pendula”, which is native to India and Sri Lanka and makes a great subtropical substitute for the Italian Cypress. It is also called the False Ashoka, Buddha Tree, Indian Mast Tree, Weeping Mast Tree, and Indian Fir Tree.
If you love the look of tall, narrow, columnar Italian Cypress trees, you will love the Mast tree! Its unusual, compact form and lush green foliage make it an excellent choice for color and, when closely spaced, for screening.
Layers of feathery, wavy-edged leaves hang from drooping branches that closely hug the straight, thin trunk. Leaf colors range from coppery brown when new, to light lime green, to a shiny dark green as they age, creating an eye-catching focal point in your Zone 10a-11 landscape.
On commercial and residential properties, Mast Trees are ideal for use as:
- focal specimens
- container plants
- avenue or driveway plantings
- living fences
- privacy screens
- noise pollution screens
Mast trees will grow to be about 30 to 45 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 4 to 5 feet. Their natural vertical form will attract attention in any landscape, but they can be trimmed to maintain a specific size or shape.
They prefer full or partial sun and well-drained soil. Mature Mast trees are drought-tolerant and suitable for xeriscaping. Young plants need protection from winds, but, once mature, the trees are remarkably flexible and will bend like bamboos in a storm.
Consider planting Mast trees when you need easy-to-maintain trees that few others will have!
If you are interested in lesser-known palm trees that will flourish in Zone 10a, be sure to ask about the Caranday Palm, a rare South American palm that is not well-known in cultivation but will make quite an impression, the smaller Dwarf Sugar Palm, an unusual clustering palm that will make a striking single specimen or lush hedge or screen when planted in groups, and the regal Foxtail Palm with its beautiful, fluffy looking fronds.
