    hi guys, this is my first post. i currently have 2 acres of vacant land in central florida thats just sitting there. a friend of my family who owns a couple palm farms is trying to talk me into planting some queen palms on it and hiring some to take care of them. i know there is most likely money to be made here but is there that much markup in trees. keep in mind i know nothing about the business it would just be an investment. just trying to see what your thoughts are, thanks for all the advice

    There's a huge mark-up on the tall Queens . The smaller ones you can buy and have installed for 125.00 or so.
