Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How long has Tropical Expressions been in business?
A: Tropical Expressions opened its doors for business in 1989. Jack’s passion for palm trees still shows today, 29 years later, in daily operations.
Q: How are the palms trees made?
A: New technology has enabled us to manufacture our palm trees from molding real live palm trees. Many of our trees are cast from live palms with High Density Polyethylene (HDPE). We do not make our palm trees with rubber coated sewer pipe like other companies. Tropical Expressions trunks will not crack, peal, or delaminate.
If you are shopping the internet for artificial palm trees ask what the trunks are made of.
Q: How are the trees installed?
A: Most of our palm trees slide down over a steel pipe. No need for bolting to a concrete pad.
Call us if you have any questions regarding installation.
Q: Can I leave the palm trees outside all year in the snow?
A: Yes, Our Queen Palm Trees can be left out all year in winter conditions, although we recommended the palm fronds on our large King Palms & Royal Coconut Palm Trees be removed for the winter. Frigid temperatures along with sleet and high winds can damage the palm fronds. We have made it very easy to remove the palm fronds. It is your choice. We carry replacement fronds if needed.
