Q: How long has Tropical Expressions been in business?
A: Tropical Expressions opened its doors for business in 1989. Please read our testimonials from many happy customers that have purchased our products over the years.
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. See our video on showcase 1
If you are shopping the internet for artificial palm trees ask what the trunks are made of.
Q: How are the palm trees installed?
A: Most of our palm trees slide down over a steel pipe. No need for bolting to a concrete pad.
Our Queen Palm trees are the easiest to install by using a steel pipe from Home Depot.Call us if you have any questions regarding installation.

Q: How are the palm trees measured:
A: Our palm trees are measured overall height - trunk and palm fronds combined. Example: Our 11' Queen Palm has an 7' trunk and a 4' palm head, making it 11' overall.
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, although if you live in an extremely windy location, such as oceanfront or lake front, we recommend you remove the palm head for the winter. 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.
Q: Can I use silk fabric type palm fronds outdoors?
A: NO. Many imported fabric type palm fronds will not last outdoors.They are designed for indoor use only.
Don't be fooled, fabric type palm fronds are not designed for outdoor use.

A: We have a A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau for 30 years with no complaints.
