Fake Palm Trees

Updated on December 20, 2013

Just this afternoon I was sitting on the deck with the sun on my face and my mind started to drift back to my recent holiday in the tropics. For all the world, I wished in desperation, if only I could go back and experience the white sand beaches and swaying palm trees once again. It dawned on me at that stage that it I was unable to go to the beach the next best thing would be to bring the beach to me. Given the limited parking we have at the front of our house it seemed like a trailer load of sand would be a bad idea and so the next logical option was to search for fake palm trees.

A quick search of Google revealed to me that I’m not the only one who has had this though, it appears that even billionaires such as Richard Branson like to keep outdoor artificial palm trees in their midst, according to a sketchy article published by the mirror he has some on a Caribbean island for some reason. After looking further into the fake palm tree industry I began to realize that this was no fly by night operation there manufactures and retailers who have been in the palm game for over ten years, and the list of locations that fake palms can be used is virtually, but not literally, endless including such fine locations as motels, mini golf courses and um... normal sized golf courses.

Looking through the extensive readings on fake palm trees it seems that the latest thing to set the artificial world on fire is internal lighting palms, these are palm trees made of a semi transparent material which accurately represent a palm tree during the day and light up at night to really get the party started.
