You're teasing us Limey's!!!

How old would you guess they are? I ask because we're thinking of emigrating, & like the idea of starting a garden off from scratch.

Meanie:

These palms are probably around 40+ years old...however, with that being said, Queen palms are very fast growers. They are planted here in San Diego and throughout California (low elevations only) by the millions. 30 foot/ 10 meters tall trees are relatively inexpensive here.

I have posted many photos of this tree in the past. Queen palms are in the background of many of my other posted photos.
