Extension: Palms and Lanscape

Palms are a very important component of landscapes in Florida, but are subject to a number of serious production and maintenance problems.  Many of these are physiological in nature, rather than being true diseases.  My program is aimed at educating commercial producers of palms and landscape installers and maintenance people who work with palms.  This is achieved via EDIS publications and intensive short courses on landscape palm management held throughout the state.
