SFPS General Meeting
August 1st @ 7pm
Jody Haynes “Moving Large Specimen Palms in South Florida”
August 1, 2022
As homeowners in our region are aware, the addition of just a single specimen palm can help transform a bland landscape into a showplace. But we also know — sometimes from painful experience — that not every palm species takes kindly to being moved; the simple yank-and-replant technique just doesn’t work for all of them.
For expert guidance to help you avoid angst and disappointment, we invite you to attend the August 1 meeting of the South Florida Palm Society. Our speaker will be Jody Haynes, an experienced hand with this demanding task. For more than 12 years, Jody has been employed as Business Development & Estimating Manager of Signature Trees & Palms, his photos and commentary will demonstrate how the pros do it.
As usual, doors to the Corbin Building at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden open at 7:00 pm. The Society will provide light fare and drinks, but, as always, we urge you to bring one of your favorite dishes — homemade or store-bought — to share with everyone.
Following the program, we will conduct an auction. We encourage you to donate a few palms toward that effort. Our auctions this year have gotten some very interesting species out into the community, and we hope to continue the trend next Monday. (Just in case the Square is not functional, you might want to bring cash or a check.)
Meeting will include a potluck and plant auction, contributions from member’s kitchens & gardens. We encourage you to bring your favorite potluck food dish, as well as tagged plants for the auction that follows the program. Thank you for your contributions.
Hope to see you soon!
