I've had 2 very positive transactions with them.
1. Ordered 3 A.myolensis seedlings and they threw in 2 free.
2. Flamethrower seedling

All came nicely packaged, on time, and resumed growth when repotted.

I have had a lot of good transactions with this seller. I have always been extremely happy with the palms I have purchased and often they send more than you actually buy. Some of their items are a bit expensive but the quality and shipping are always fantastic so I would continue to buy from them.

I do a lot of trading and some buying with the Ebay seller known as Coconut Climber. There are many shady operations on Ebay, but you always know what you are going to get, plus some with him. I will continue doing business with him in the future.

I've bought a few palms from Coconut Climber on eBay over the years, and every time has been a positive experience.

I have bought from Coconut Climber in the past and have been a satisfied customer. Always arrived in great shape! I now, buy almost exclusivley from locals, but I'd definately recommend them for someone without local access or that hard to get palm.

I have ordered quite a few items from Coconut Climber in the past year and have always been pleased with my palms.

He has a nice variety, quality is good, root system is excellent, good price and packaging. I also usually receive a few extra palms in my order.

I've had several outstanding purchases from this vendor and will continue doing business with them! They have a great selection on Ebay and has others that aren't listed. Paul is great to deal with and is never too busy to stop and answer questions about palms!

I have to echo what everyone else is saying about this vendor. I've ordered a dozen or so palms from him and they always arrive in great shape and half the time he even throws in a free palm or 2. Always a pleasure doing business with this guy.

Recently ordered bare root dypsis true ambositrae and prestoniana from this vendor. They arrived within 3 days of order, and were in fantastic shape even though they shipped from california to florida. :) This guy really knows how to take care of and ship his stock, lush and green with nice root systems, as recieved. After seeing them, I thought I should have ordered a couple more... If you want something you cant find locally, try this seller out, you will have it in great shape in a few days.

I haven't bought anything from him, but spoke a few times through email about shipping. He definitely has a very nice selection of palms

Thanks Everyone! I've been in contact with this vendor and purchased some P. sargentii. I didn't realize when I started this thread that his store goes under the name CoconutClimber and there is already a thread under this name. He asked me if I would ask to have the threads combined. I'll ask the Mod to do this and let you all know how the plants are when they arrive, but I don't have any worries based on what everyone has had to say!

Is ebay the only way to order palms from him or does he have a website/nursery/email? Im only a couple of minutes away from santa ana and would rather pick up plants then have them shipped.

Thanks

Shad
