    I need to purchase some palms ( christmass/queen/ect) for a project. Where is the best place to start looking to get some at a price where I will not lose my shirt. I live in the central florida area if that makes a difference. Thanks.

    Tropic Traditions, located in Newberry, just West of Gainesville is a nice place. They have a website that has their trees on it but I would give Jim a call and ask him if he has what you need.

    If you're ever on the turnpike, there's a big palm supplier that is located right next to a toll plaza in Leesburg. That would probably be a little closer for you. mrbray101, what's the name of your company?

    I used to have a maintenance business here (gainesville) while I was in school. I had some family issues I had to pay for and ended up selling the few commercial accounts I had and almost all my equipment. I've been working for Top Dog Lawns in town for 3 years now while I attend UF. He does maintenance for about 12 large apartment complexes in Gainesville and Landscaping around town.

    get your USDA stock dealer license and get them from a plant broker wherever you live.
