We purchased the 5 acre scarified property to our West primarily as a buffer zone to protect our globally endangered Miami Rock Pineland. The property had been rock plowed for over 40 years and was used to plant row crop tomatoes, squash, and beans.

We decided to plant palms and bamboo - specializing in the slower growing rarer palms and the tropical clumping blue and black bamboo. Our property is solid oolitic limestone, so we had to drill 7,000 30" - 36" diameter holes to plant the palms and bamboo after the acreage was trenched for overhead frost protection and micro-irrigation. We do not offer any tree material in containers.

Our plan is to grow the trees larger than is commonly available and to concentrate in the rarer, harder to find plant species. Eventually, when the trees have reached a marketable height and a landscape contractor has chozen the trees, we arrange for a crew to come in and root prune the trees, which may take upwards of 4 or 5 months. The trees are then popped out of the coral rock using spades, digging bars, and jack hammers and transported throughout Florida and the Carribean for installation.
