You should show some of the needle palms that were growing there in the 1990's.

Sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua), red maple (Acer rubrum), and tulip tree (Liriodendron tulipifera).  The picture is very blurry, and of course there are no leaves on some of these trees this time of year.

Nice place. Love the Chamaerops and all the Spanish moss in the trees.

Regards Neil

I did not take any pictures of Chamaerops.  You were probably referring to the needle palms (Rhapidophyllum hystrix).

Wow that's strange. I'm sure I posted that reply in the Ravine gardens state park post but somehow it ended up here. Anyway sorry about that. I do love your needle palms too.

Regards Neil

Here's an update to those two Beccariophoenix alfredii I posted a few years ago.  One of them bit the dust.

Hard to believe one bit the dust there.  Thanks for the update!

A friend of mine was able to get better pics of the palm(s) in question. Not sure what happened to the second one, but the big one seems nice and healthy
