Punta Gorda, Florida, Is Palm Tree Paradise

One of the things people notice about Punta Gorda, Florida, is its plethora of palm trees. Indeed, the sabal palm is Florida’s official state tree, and on the state’s official seal.

When people in colder cities think of Florida, what images come to mind? Beaches and palm trees. Punta Gorda has both!

Did you know there are over 2000 kinds of palm trees, in many places including rainforests and deserts? Throughout human history, they’ve had an important role providing food and shade in areas that don’t have heavy frosts.

Your potential Punta Gorda home can look like a picture postcard with its elegant, tropical palm trees. Imagine your friends “up north” seeing pictures of you and your palm trees—they’ll be jealous!
