Default New Jersey Palm Trees

My cousin lives in New Jersey. What Palm Trees will do well in New Jersey. He moved from Florida and had lots of palm trees there. I want to fill his whole area with palm trees that can do well in New Jersey Year Round. I heard something about cold hardy palm trees doing well in New Jersey. Like a Windmill or European Fan Palm but I want something that will for sure not die. Something that will handle 5 degree weather. New Jersey gets really cold. He lives by the beach.

Default Jersey Palms (New Jersey Palm Trees)

The Needle Palm is probably the best bet for New Jersey. The Windmill palm would do ok with some protection year after year until they get acclimated to the area. A long the shores of New jersey he should be okay with a windmill and then buy him some needle palms. Some banana's do well in the cold. What you can also get him is some indoor palms to sort of create a whole effect rather than just having them inside.

Default Just came back from The Sands in Atlantic City

It was a blast, we got there yesterday morning and we just got back about an hour ago. They had large palm trees there but I did not know palm trees grew in New Jersey. I asked someone on the way out and they said they have them brought in.

Default Palm Trees that live in New Jersey

Here is your best choices. Needle Palm, Waggie Palm which is the Miniature Chusan Palm and the Sabal Minor.

These all will do extremely well by the shore. A little protection for palms in general is a good thing.
SMILE. Someone is looking. Go Green. Buy Palms!

Default New Jersey Palms

thank so much to all of you in helping me find a good palm. What I did was go with two needle Palms for the outside patio garden. I also went with a bamboo palm for the inside and went with a Waggie Palm or however you name it for the outside. Who would have thought Palm trees in New Jersey.

Default New Jersey Palm Trees NJ

I am glad you picked those palm trees. They will definitely make him happy. You may want to do the Sabal minor since it is native to Florida. I have seen lots of Waggie palms deal with snow with no problems. I recently went to Peru and they types of palms there were amazing. I felt like a new born full of curiosity and joy. I thought I was knowledgeable with palms but with there being over 2000 species I felt naive.

Default New Jersey is aweful to visit...

I went to New Jersey thinking it was going to be great living with my cousins, it turned out to be the most boring spot I have ever been to. I found myself constantly online talking with other people because it was so difficult to talk to anyone down there.

I never went to go see a basketball game because the tickets were 85 dollars a piece. My cousins and I did the only thing there was to do in New Jersey, waiting to go to New York City... That's pretty much where we ending up going, to the Big City. Now Manhattan is definitely a fantastic place to visit again and again..

I went into FAO Schwarz which had the coolest state of the art stuff that you can try out. I felt like a kid again. There was also a place called Barcode, I wont even start with that. Also, there's no pizza like New York pizza.. forget about it... they must put something into the pizza to make it taste that good. I asked the server or waiter and he said it was the water. I looked at him stunned, water... thats the secret, to make good new york pizza its the water...

Anyways, enough of my blabbering, New Jersey is only a resting spot for New York City... Thats my two cents... : )

There is a lot of stuff here not pertaining to the main topic which is what palm trees will grow and do well in New Jersey. Not Hot Spots and Girls and other non related posts.

Default New Jersery Palm Trees

I totally forgot about one palm tree that would do extremely well if you live by the coast of New Jersey. The Blue Needle Palm Tree will do very well in New Jersey and will grow a trunk rather tall. I can't believe I forgot about that palm tree.

These palms can do well in pretty much any coast in America all the way from Florida, Georgia, Texas, Cali, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Conetticut. I know I left a lot of states but I felt you get the picture with the ones I mentions.

New Jersey Palms on the beach in Atlantic City get thrown away every year. They should replace them the Waggie Palm and Blue Needle Palm. They would save tons on palm trees.

Default Those palm trees you gave for New Jersey? Jersey Palms

Would they also do well in Georgia? If they can do well in New Jersey I sure hope they do well in Georgia. New Jersey gets super cold. I visited Boston during winter and it is super cold. I can't imagine a palm tree living there. I never knew people would buy palm trees and then have them just die and replaced the following year. What a waist to have palm trees die year after year. I am kind of curious to see if in Jersey Shore the show if there were palms in any of the episodes.

Jersey Shore what a joke. Anyone agree?

Okay for those that need some information regarding Jersey Shore, here it is, enjoy!

Jersey Shore is a reality television series on MTV that It follows eight housemates in Real World-type style while they live, work and party at the New Jersey Shore. The show was filmed in August 2009 in a summer share in Seaside Heights but was also filmed in other towns such as Toms River, Neptune and Atlantic City, New Jersey. The show debuted amid large amounts of controversy regarding the use of the words "Guido/Guidette", portrayals of Italian-American stereotypes and scrutiny from locals because the cast members are not residents from the area. The theme song featured in the opening credits is "Get Crazy" by LMFAO.

On January 29, 2010, MTV announced that a second season of the series consisting of 12 episodes has been ordered and will air in the summer.MTV announced that the second season would follow all of the first season cast as they "escape the cold northeast and find themselves in a new destination".The first half of second season was shot in the South Beach neighborhood of Miami Beach, Florida in May 2010 and then the cast relocated back to The Shore for the rest of filming. The second season begins on July 29, 2010.

The show examines the lives of eight young cast members living and vacationing on the various resorts along the Jersey Shore, more specifically the town of Seaside Heights. In exchange for living and partying in the shore house, each member of the cast is required to work shifts at a local boardwalk t-shirt store. Failure to comply with the ground rules set by their boss, who owns the shore house in which the cast resides, results in termination and eviction from the shore house.

MTV has focused its lens on various subcultures and rites of passage, uncovering a host of memorable characters in the process. With its newest series, Jersey Shore, MTV peels back yet a different curtain to follow eight young adults as they move into a summer share to indulge in everything Seaside Heights, New Jersey, one of the most popular summer hot spots, has to offer. Jersey Shore uncovers sometimes surprising, often hilarious and usually over-the-top personalities as they juggle work, love, nightlife, friendship and the drama that ensues. In the end, viewers see that there is more to these tan and buff individuals than hair gel.

So in regards to georgia landscaping's post... now you know whats hes talking about.

Default New Jersey Palm Trees for NJ Coast

NJ palm trees. below.
You can mix and match these palm trees and make a beautiful landscape.

Windmill Palm Tree
Waggie Palm Tree
Needle Palm Tree
Maybe European Fan Palm
Pindo Palm
Mule Palm
Saw Palmetto

If you want a single stem palm trees then maybe go with something like a Windmill Palm or a Waggie Palm. If you want shrub palms then you can do the Needle Palms.

Mule Palms are new and are pretty cold hardy. Dont know to much about them but they are a mix between the pindo palm and the queen palm.

Lots of people in New Jersey and other cold states wills ell tropical palms only to die each year. If people were just a little more intuitive they would know what to buy and what not to buy.

Also Lowe's and Home depot in cold states like North Carolina, South Carolina, New Jersey, Georgia, New York, Maine, even in Canada will sell tropical palms for the outside like the Coconut Palm. I had a friend tell me that Home depot in his neighborhood was selling Coconut Palms. First Coconut palms can not grow indoor even with all the lighting in the world. Maybe in a Green House with good humidity and climate control. Other than that the palms will die every year and year after year Lowe's will sell them because they know people will keep on buying them. Guess its the way of the world.

Jersey Shore is a Joke!

Default SO much Random information on New Jersey with Palm Trees

I feel like I just got downloaded with information. Information about Jersey Shore, which I did watch. Can't believe they have a second season coming. It was a joke but entertaining to see how childish even grown ups are. Well I wouldn't consider them grown ups. On the other Subject of places to go, that was interesting. Maybe in the future when I do visit New Jersey I will come back on this palm tree forum to make sure i have all those places written down.

Now back to palm trees. What LPN wrote is on the DOT!. Minus the Pindo Palm. Pindo Palm will most likely die in New Jersey.

DO the NEedle Palm and Waggie Palm. Your good to go with those two palm trees.

Needle Palm has been growing in New York for the past ten years experiencing weather down to -20 degrees F. The Waggie Palm is a bit more cold tolerant than the windmill palm tree and has stiffer leaves so you do not get the droopy affect from the leaves when snow or rain hits them.

I think they have the NEedle Palm and the Waggie Palm on here. Check out your local nurseries to see what they carry and bench mark prices. Prices on here are sometimes better than your retail garden center.

How are the BEaches in New Jersey? I heard you have to pay for entry to the beaches. So Dumb.

Smile Do you any plants that would do good in the city?

I posted a thread about indoor plants in the city but does anyone here know about what plants would do good in the city? There are a couple of different choice I was looking into such as the ponytail palm, areca plant, and the bamboo plant... I think I like the Ponytail Palm the best. Its for a friend of mine that just moved into Manhattan into a small studio with just one window...

any ideas would be great, thanks.
