This is amazing information. Even though I have little worry about palms in VA, it was a fascinating subject and you covered it very well. Thanks for sharing the information.

I agree, a lot of info in a concise well put article. In Alaska we only see them in pictures, film and on vacation. Could you tell me why some trees (palms included) are painted white part way up from the ground?. I s it for looks, insect control, traffic visibility or some other reason? Inquiring minds want to know. Great amount of valuable information in a well written manner. More, please...

Quoting:Could you tell me why some trees (palms included) are painted white part way up from the ground?

When I've seen it, it's been for traffic visibility.

Thanks, Resin, always wanted to know. It makes sense and at times a beautiful vanishing point view, like driving by a flowing white fence line.
