Recommended Posts


parking lot Sabal seedling perhaps as old as almost 30 years I discovered having my tires changed in Mesquite. This baby has seen some freezes what a survivor! 20240130_131443.thumb.jpg.da64ba0d933b3c8b3d2e429e22bb39dd.jpg

These 30 year old Wash. f. some still have green in centers but this gentlemen's club has yet to remove 2021,2,3 freeze's fatalities! 20240130_131515.thumb.jpg.61e96627b9a1576639a3135b0aff8c6f.jpg20240130_131535.thumb.jpg.ac65e79cfc4fc7468d608a6e9f8d040d.jpg

Amazed these babies survived below freezing uncovered almost 70 hours last month ( by mother)! Maybe she helped them underground?20240130_140715_HDR.thumb.jpg.2ce2fdf5f5d94ee7dae4e1e6efe83ee4.jpg

30 year old Butias seem fine but they were not covered so a testament to their durability! 20240130_140657_HDR.thumb.jpg.ec0166b065dd673da52db5ecf80095fb.jpg20240130_140822.thumb.jpg.69a28f6811284e737a8c1e0b67c12c8e.jpg

These hardy Sabal texanas prob did not need wrapped but many businesses and homeowners like me did anyway to protect their investments!20240130_140813.thumb.jpg.30bda2f7fbfab60cc00ebb78af1fb5b0.jpg20240130_140817_HDR.thumb.jpg.aae7fd788d6e938a23e8e7ab4656590f.jpg20240130_140812.thumb.jpg.4f81705fe873a55c3aecb839d6b86520.jpg

Most Trachys and Sabals sp. unwrapped so are scorched but fine!20240130_140845.thumb.jpg.0e54ddaf7d6432409d45cf1c3f639dac.jpg Italian cypress just do not do well in my fair city. The ones in Cali put these to shame but hey, at least they try to stay alive!

All in all not a terrible freeze but not terrific either. Can we have a few mild winters now for a change? 🤨
