Default EL Paso Palm Trees all dead need Replacement Palms

EL Paso Texas has all there Palm Trees all dead and need Replacement Palms. It is so sad to see all the palm trees in El Paso Texas dead and withering away. Our town was so proud of the palm trees they has and we have the coldest winter in a very long time. Now the freeze killed all the company palm trees and all the palm trees in the residential neighbor I live in. Now I am looking for palm trees for the El Paso texas area that will live even through very cold winters like the one we have this past one. Before I had my yard landscaped with Mexican Fan Palms but they all died. Now I am looking for company or crane company to remove these palm trees. Once they are removed I need to purchase and buy new palms for the existing holes. Please does anyone know of any palm trees I can buy for my area? Thank you so much for your palm tree advice.

Default Hello Palm lover

I am a landscaper in the area and I know what you mean by the dead palms. Everywhere its happening, where do you live by, I can stop by and let you know what it cost for your landscaping. I do landscaping in the el paso area but not in juarez. tooo dangerous. I can remove your old palms and fix up your yard for a good price.

Default Dead Palms, what palm trees survived?

Did any of the palm trees survive at all? What do you think the city of El Paso will do with all these dead palm trees. Do they replace the palms on the highways and streets? Any one of you have a photo of all the dead palm trees? You can buy Cold Hardy Palms that can survive the coldest winters with out dying like the Windmill Palm or Needle Palm or Canary Island Date Palm.

Default I also need palm tree installed on my property?

I also was one of the ones who lost about a dozen of palm trees. All of them were also Mexican Fan Palms which is the last time I am buying those, even though they are cheaper than other palms it is not worth it to loose these palms when ever a winter is too cold. Now I have all these dead palm trees and it makes my house look awful. I am thinking about redoing my entire landscape and have some professionals install correct palm trees for my yard. Some of the California Fan Palms lived as I travel to work and home so that is a good sign. I may get a few California Fan Palms and other cold tolerant palms for my front of the house. Anyone have a good selection of palm trees I can look at. I heard the Windmill is good but what about a Pindo Palm or Bismarck Palm Tree. I want a palm tree that I will never have to worry about. I saw the Holiday Inn by the airport and all the palms were dead. A lot of commercial properties lost their palms including the city landscaping.

Smile I came across this forum looking for help with choosing the right palms for el paso

What palms do good in El Paso? I did a little research and it shows that the windmill palm and european fan palm do well in el paso? After the freeze we had during winter I am scared to plant anything that might die but looking at the pictures and reading thier traits I think I am going to buy them. I am going to buy two windmills and two european fan palms. I read that the windmill palms come from the himalayan mountains and i am sure El Paso does not get as cold as those mountains... at least hope not. I am going to buy them on monday and will update you on their progress and how I receive them. If there is something better I should get let me know by monday. thx Alice in EL Paso

Default Dead palms??? Ouch.

It seems a lot of people lost there palms in Texas this year. As far as I am aware the Mule Palms did very well. The Mule Palm has been preselected as 2012 Palm of the year by the FNGLA. Floridas nurseyr growers landscapers association. It is a hybrid that can handle 14F.

Still wondering why real palm trees has not picked any of these up yet.

Default Hardy palmtrees

El Paso has a very dry, extreme changing climate and most palmtrees just get too stressed out and die. Others, however, really do enjoy El Paso's abundant sunny days and sandy soils. I think this is the case of the Phoenix varieties. Some of them got roasted with the Feb 3, 2011 freeze yet some survived and are doing fairly well. The Mexican Fan Palm (washingtonia robusta) is also very tough but can only tolerate so much cold. Those are the ones that were on the news since they look the most dramatic when their leaves brown. (By the way this is typical for these types of palms in the winter in El Paso). The Butia palm is also VERY tough and doesn't brown ONE BIT. My neighbor has about six of them and they are about ten years old, they are so tough and prickly they work better than a barbwire fence. So Butias are good. I have been reading about the Mule palm which I have never tried growing in El Paso, and I have never seen it, but if it is as hardy as its parent (butia) then it should do just fine. Here a few pics of some Phoenix palms at walgreens by Sunland Park and Mesa taken Oct 13, 2011. They were trimmed but it looks like they survived the -1 F temperatures registered on Feb, 3 2011.
