Laguna Beach Residential Home Owner Chooses Canary Island Palms from Gregory Palm Farms

The owner of a large, 5 acre residential home in Laguna Beach has chosen Gregory Palm Farms to install several large Canary Island Palm Trees along with a variety of other palm trees for their overall landscape design.

The Canary Island Date Palm is a large majestic palm, with a very solid trunk and long feather leaves with spined petioles. These palms have a single, wide, heavy trunk brown trunk with characteristic leaf diamonds on the trunk.

The Canary Island Palm is quite a popular plant due to its hardiness, attractiveness and speed of growth. It is has low water needs, is tolerant of most well drained soils and can reach heights of 60 feet with a 30 - 50 foot spread on the crown.

Canary Island Palms are very good for adding a Mediterranean feel.

Due to the massive size of the Canary Island Date Palms, large cranes are needed to carefully move the trees into position for installation. Sometimes they have to be craned up slopes, over walls and even over the roof of houses or buildings.

Here are some pictures of this installation.

King Palms on the Move!


At Gregory Palm Farms, the King Palm is one of our most requested palm trees. The smooth, straight trunk makes the king palm a widely adaptable palm that adds stately accent to any landscape.

This popular, elegant, and fast-growing palm from southern and eastern Australia has grass green leaves and a smooth crown-shaft. An easy-to-grow plant suitable for cool temperate to tropical climates, or for indoors if given bright light.

The King Palm requires a well drained soil, uses a moderate amount of water and grows to 30 - 40 feet. It does well in full sun or shade. The King Palm is also self-cleaning.

All of our King Palms at Gregory Palm Farms are field grown with some being transferred to boxes for shipment to customer installations.
Here is a picture of our King Palms in the field and also a truckload being shipped from our Pauma Valley farm to our Orange, CA. location.
