Pindos naturalized in Camp Blanding/Starke FL?
This is more about Camp Blanding than Starke FL but I included Starke as it is the closest town/city in the vicinity.
Anyway, I am on my Annual Training orders with the Florida National Guard at Camp Blanding for two weeks and Ive noticed something very strange. Palmettos and Saw Palms are everywhere of course but Butias/Pindos are the preferred palm of planting on this base. There must be hundreds of really old and mature specimens on this camp that were all obviously planted. The thing is as I travel "the back 40", far out in the woods, I see many Pindos that are out there just growing on their own and "pupping" and just as obviously not planted there.
It appears to me that the Pindos have a gained a solid foothold here on Camp Blanding and are spreading without human support.
Anyone else care to weigh in with additional information or .02?
