    • COMING PALMTALK CHANGES - PLEASE READ   02/14/2017

      In the coming week (probably beginning this weekend), several major changes will be occurring with PalmTalk. The result will be short periods of complete closure, or of limited viewing (that is, no posting - but viewing still possible). These changes are major and unexpected complications are always a possibility. So, please be patient and bear with us. For those interested, the first phase will be a migration of the entire site to a new more powerful server. After this is completed, a major upgrade to the newest version of the forum software will then be attempted. It is hoped that these improvements, along with some new configurations of various parameters made possible with the new server capabilities, will result in an elimination of some error messages and glitches which have been plaguing various tasks and viewing recently. As with any upgrade there will probably be some new and/or changed features, or ways of viewing and/or using the forum. I anticipate these will be minor, and as always if there is anything confusing or needing explanation, we will set up a topic to discuss them.
    • Server Upgrade Tonight 2/21 10pm EST   02/20/2017

      Sometime around 10pm EST tonight our server will be off line for an update. The time it takes to get back up will depend on your location, but should be less than a day.  

Virginia beach waterfront Full headed Sabal seeding

5 posts in this topic

at VA beach you usually have to go a mile inland to see good healthy full headed sabals.  I was on google street view and this palmetto is right near the water, and has a full head despite most businesses trimming the palms to look more tropical.  it is even seeding.

I also would want some seed! Good find! I found a Sabal palmetto with a pretty full head about 50 yards more inland than that one. I will see if I have a picture.

funny I didnt see this until now.  That palm has been there for quite a few years. Prob 10 or so.  I remember it when it was very stout.  there is a holiday inn next to that that always plants them. Some survive and one I know has been there for over a decade. Its very evident which one it is because its twice as tall as all of the rest around it. Its got a good 25 feet or so of trunk.
