I was thinking of planting a couple 12 foot coconut trees on my swale outside my house. My wife is against it because she thinks they would be dangerous (coconuts falling on peoples heads or damaging cars) But as long as we pick the coconuts off the trees before Hurricane season we should be pretty safe right? Problem is that in a few years the trees will be too tall to reach the coconuts without some specialist equipment. How fast do coconut trees grow? And how much would it cost to hire someone to come and remove the coconuts before hurricane season each year? I am in South Florida.
