Not sure that is correct....there is no enforcement in fact not sure who has a law preventing it.....the County maybe?

No law preventing.




We had a door-to-door a couple months ago.
A neighbor called Community Watch.
They actually came, met the guy and escorted them out the gate.
May not always work, but I was surprised.

If their paperwork is in order (they have a license/certification if it's required, a tax ID for their business, etc)...
but that would require that you actually check on them before you agree to let them any further into a transaction than the knock on your door.

They look heathy so if the $350 will not kill you it looks like a great deal. Do thry have a number you can call that if it dies they will give you another?

Looks like a Robalini. If so, they are susceptible to cold temps. Not native to our zone.

Yes! They have good trees at a good price. We had one planted by them a month ago and it’s doing great!

I’m not a palm tree person only I think they’re dirty & need maintenance. If they driving around trying to sell these trees, & if they’re that anxious to sell them do what we did & offer them $100. less we had someone offer us to buy 1 & at the time they wanted $200. for the tree & plant it, we got it for $100. They’ll give you some song & dance about but don’t give in & pay what they’re asking!

I have one in my yard at least 12 foot tall It didn’t grown that tall over night more like 17 years when the villa was built.
