WINTERIZE YOUR TREES
After successfully winterizing over 100 windmill palms last year, by building a wood frame around them and wrapping it in plastic. We found there was a lot of waste. So we set out on building a better system that can be reused year after year and has an easy setup. As your tree grows you can even purchase a two foot extension kit. This custom cover is made out of SUNBRELLA canvas, a breathable material. In addition the custom made PVC support poles snap onto the four galvanized post of the frame, making assembly quick and easy. This process requires no drilling or screwing so it makes disassembly just as easy.
