I'm pretty sure that this is a Canary Island date palm.
They are somewhat common in Central Florida.

RE: Palm ID please

thats what i thought.
Under the palm there seems to be seedlings growing from dropped seed. but im not sure.
they look a long thick single blade of grass, Are these ok to remove and place in a pot?

RE: Palm ID please

I would wait until there are a few "blades" and there's a little bit of a base forming to allow them to start developing a root system. At the single blade stage, they may only have 1 or 2 roots that if broken, would mean the plant dies.

It looks like there's a couple more of those palms planted along the fence. Are those your palms or somebody else's? If yours, I would move the two small ones planted along the fence. Those palms get huge, and to have 3 of them planted so close together is not a good idea.

RE: Palm ID please

Thanks for the advice.
No, these are not my palms, you cannot see it in this photo but there are more planting underneath all the trees on this lot, some are less then 2 feet apart. its quite insane lol
