Re: My goodness, sabals are tough.
I've had the same kinds of experiences here Ronnie. Sabals and needles are pretty darn tough, though needles can spear pull fairly easily when they are small.
In my experience trachycarpus tend to get a lot tougher when they've gotten big enough to have around a foot of trunk or more. I may even stop planting them until they are at least a 5 to 7 gallon size. At least for me, they just spear pull too easily at smaller sizes. I've lost a lot of them just from spear pull and rot when they haven't even seen temps below 20F.
