How Fast Do Palm Trees Grow?

Pretty fast actually... While going through some old photos, I was struck by the "bareness" of the beach right after we built our Cabanas at The Maine Stay. It feels so much different now... and the before and after pictures show this pretty dramatically. In the second photo note the very small 1-2 foot palms we planted arrayed along the beach. Then in the last two photos see the mature palm growth of today. This pretty much confirms what we were told by our local friends that most palms grow 2 - 3 feet per year.

Before - in 2002
After - in 2010
