Ive seen some of the sabals growing with pines and hardwoods all over the coastal panhandle.  is this part of their native range?  does anyone else know of sabals naturalizing out of their native range?

Check out this website. http://w3.biosci.utexas.edu/prc/Sabal/Praha.html . It discusses a possible population of Sabal palmetto in Central Texas. I expect there are other small populations of S. palmetto around Houston and maybe some of the other large cities in Texas but not sure.

Yep, there certainly has to be sabals (both palmetto and mexicana) growing wild and about in the Houston metro (especially in the southeastern/coastal areas). Even Washingtonia palms have already started growing wild in Houston (through freeway cracks on I-45), so surely places like Galveston, Bolivar Peninsula, Galveston Bay area, etc would have sabal palms taking over that landscape easily.
