Default Canary Palms at wholesale

I told my friend about this site in Texas and he was in shocked that the prices for the Canary Island Date palms were cheaper on here than wholesale prices in Texas. Well he told me the other day that he purchased two 7 ft clear trunk Canary palms. I told him to send me pictures of them once he had them installed or if RPT sent him any. So I will post up the pics I get of the Canary's.

I talked to another friend in California. And he told me that to buy a Canary Island Date Palm in Cali is any where from 800-1200 a foot of Clear Trunk. That is ridiculous.

Default Canary Date Palms at wholesale

1000 dollars, what a rip off. They are making so much money. I guess its the price for Cali. Everything is more expensive there. Even here its like 450 a foot. But thats a good deal i guess for LA 640. Is that delivered? How many did you get?

Smile $100 trunk foot

$695 I know some growers that will sell them for $100 per trunk foot With out delivery here in San Diego. I think you guys need to shop around more. Your going to break the bank with those prices! I don't think i would pay more than $200 per trunk foot with delivery. Search for private vendors using craigslist Deals Deals Deals

Default 100 a ft of cleat trunk?

for maybe a smaller one like up to 4 ft. There is no way that grower would still be in business. lol Imagine if you wanted a 20 ft CT Canary. so that would only be 2000. No way. I used craiglist to find good prices. I did too but not on the larger specimen palms like the canary's, some people still charge up the ying yang and there are not pretty. Classified as number 2's meaning they might have a little bend in them or they have scars, small nut, small trunk and what not. People will pay for the quality I suppose. I would definitely like to know what grower is selling for 100 a foot could you tell me? Thanks a bunch.

Exclamation Shop Around

I paid $2200 each for my 15 foot solid "Trunk" with delivery and placement. I think your getting ripped off my friend. Not trying to be rude just stating facts... I only bought 2 maybe you just havent found the right Nursery ... I paid total $4,500 for 2 palms with $100 for delivery gas. @ 1000 Palms Nursery Fallbrook California speacializing in mature palms. I didn't have a delivery distance of 150 miles more like 40 miles but still they had the crane and truck and all I had to do was make sure the holes were dug so they could be placed when delivered. But if what you say is true then it sounds like I must have not got straight good looking canary's... But I asure you my price was $4500 and they are perfect. Deals are out there!!!!!

Default Well john you can. You have a trailer?

Here is the thing lots of these places wont sell to the public because they strictly do wholesale. Call RPT, They can give you wholesale prices if you are doing a pick up with out any business information. I told the friend in Texas that same thing. He just got them and he loved them. However he had his shipped. Ask for wholesale prices or a discount and they will give you something off.

Hey PathFinder
I think I may have called the wrong place but I called this thousand palm nursery in Cali. They didn't even know what I was talking about when I asked if they could get a canary island date for me. So I am still skeptical about how you got those palms at that price. Because if i went up to you and ask you how much you wanted for your canary palms you would most likely quote me a lot more than what you paid. I am still interested in what nursery you got them from, help a palm lover out. lol

Here is what google had on thousand palm nursery

Default Canary palm wholesale

I got a few Canary Island Date palm trees at wholesale and When i went on here, they were cheaper. Kind of shocked. The place i bought them from charged me 425 a ft of clear trunk. Well i called here and they told me they can do it for 375 per foot of trunk. I would have saved a fortune, enough to have bought another one. SO Mad

Default Canary Island Date Palm Trees Wholesale.

Wholesale is different for everybody. To tell you the truth if I was going out of business I would take what I could get. If I was seeling them like hot cakes I would try to keep my prices the same or even raise them for the Canary. If some one was going to order 50 Canary Island Date Palms, then the price is most def negotiable. I have seen wholesale prices for the Canary Date Palms go for 700 and down to about 200. It really depends on the company and where they are in there current business. Also location. Prices fluctuate in different states. Prices for Canary's in Cali may be 500-800 but in texas they may be 400-500 and in Florida you may be looking at 300-425. Again it goes down to the quality location and the place of business your dealing with.
