    I am trying to find the name of these palms that are about 20 ft tall and look like pygmy date palms but much larger. What are they and how much do they normally run?

    I'm looking at my John Deere Landscapes Summer '07 price list (which is higher than a regular wholesale grower) and they list them @ $750.00 for a 12-14 foot multi trunk uninstalled. If you have a wholesale grower near you I would estimate you could get the same tree installed for that amount or less.

    What if I had one that was 20-25 ft?
    What would be the worth then?

    It depends on if this is yours or need a price for a customer?
    If its yours I would not give you squat for it cause that means I have to come over and dig it out, haul heavy equipment there and so forth.

    Or I can go to my supplier and pull up load one on the the flatbed and be gone in 10 minutes.

    But to answer your question I would give 1200 cause that is what I pay for one that size.

    YOu would have to dig it and load it on my trailer for me.
