I have too many palms, need to sell, Florida Landscapers attn!!!

This summer me and the wife bought a new house, the former owners put (in my opinion) way too many palms in the yard.

I have 1 windmill palm, about 20-25 washatonians, and 6 queen palms I would like to sell. Also about 20-25 big sagos as well.

I expect the buyer to dig them up and haul them off, but I will get right with someone on the prices,
Thanks for your time.

Im interested in your palms.
PM me your phone number.

We wont use the sagos, stopped installing those 5 years ago and a lot of wholesalers are not growing them anymore. They get the asian bug and destroy the plant.

How tall are the queens and washies?

Yamadooski, for some reason or other lawnsite will not let me send you a pm, email me and I will get you all the info you need. 3 of the queens are around 9-10 ft and 3 are 6 ft or so.
The washatonians are between 5 and 10 ft.
Thanks for your interest.

If the price was right they'd sell in heartbeat. a lot of palms in florida are field grown so they have ot be dug, and if a landscape company has a small tree spade or mini backhoe, this is a good way to get good trees at a heckuva price...
