Africas' Golden Palm (556 words)
The oil palm on the other hand is a perennial tree which produces oil crops within 2.5 years of planting.
The yield of oil per hectare of oil palm is as much as 9 to 10 times that of a yield of soybeans, with 30-40t/ha of fruit not being uncommon.
However, if people are producing oil palm products for export, they don't have time to produce their own food for eating, so the industry needs to be structured in such a way that it is not too exploitative and labourers earn enough to buy a decent diet.
Golden Gate Palms&Exotics (552 words)
Whether you need your palms dropped off on the side walk, tree dollied to the far reaches of your backyard, or craned straight from our truck, our deliveries are prompt and professional.
But if you were a Canary Palm Tree installer, and your average was one for three for every installation job, you would be out of business (if not bankrupt) after the first couple of jobs.
Our guarantee is simple: If we install your palm and maintain it for one year and it dies during this period, we replace it- no questions asked.
