Palm Removal/Relocation

click to enlargeLet's face it, palms are beautiful but if planted in the wrong spot (like any tree for that matter), they can become a nuisance. But unlike most other large trees, palms can be reused and transplanted into a place where they will be much appreciated and admired. So if you have a palm you are wanting to remove, take a snap shot of it and email it to info@goldengatepalms.com (or snail mail to: Golden Gate Palms, P.O. Box 1172, Lafayette, CA 94549). If we think we can spare your palm from an untimely death, we will give you a call and arrange for a site visit. The only palm we are generally not interested in is the Mexican Fan Palm unless there are more than 1 and they are no taller than 30’.


Special Event Plant Rental

Golden Gate Palms will assist in designing a plant layout which will create the desired effects of screening, backdrop, accent, framing - or even a complete jungle.

We also offer delivery, setup and teardown services. Call us for a price on a lush green portable real live jungle such as our award winning Burmese garden (pictured at right) which we set up at the 2002 San Francisco Flower & Garden Show.
