About ten years ago I had Roy and his crew install some canary island date palms and some med palms around my home in Rancho Santa Fe, CA. I have since sold that estate and have moved into a smaller condo in Del Mar,Ca I found myself needing more palms and plants for my new home, I asked around for Roy with some friends to see if he was still in business as I was referred by a friend to go to his website at sunsetpalms.net Roy was very quick to respond to my email and phone message, and he remembered me and my old project as well. I was impressed that Roy had three of his sons working with him and they were all very polite and professional. I am very happy I went the extra mile and looked for Roy and his sons like I did, our second time around was very pleasurable and actually a lot of fun performing the palm installations. One thing that impressed me about Roy is that it is quite obvious that he loves what he is doing and takes a lot of pride in his work. I really felt that when he told me he was going to bring me palms that he would plant at his own house that he was stretching things. But he was right. I would recommend Roy, his three sons, and Sunset Palms Inc. to anyone who is looking for awesome palm trees, olive trees,or more. John M. Rancho Santa Fe

I had the extreme pleasure of working with Roy Tuck, his beautiful wife Debbie and his son's Richard and Stephen. Together we relocated a number of very tall and very heavy canary island date palms for the City of L A School District Ambassador Hotel re-development project. The job was very dangerous and it took a lot of planning and forethought to make the project flow safely and move these super large palms to a holding yard nearby for later use. The project lasted a number of weeks and it was a success all the way around for everyone involved. Roy and his crew have been maintaining these same palms since their move and will be on my list to move them back onto the project in the future. Good family crew and operator, Jack Bohanon foreman

STAY AWAY from Roy and his company. They are nothing but thieves. They took my 50% deposit down for two palm trees and said they will bring it and install it i 3 days and now its going to be almost a month and he is saying i didn't buy the trees from him and he is just a broker. I am taking him to court and i will make sure he will not be scamming anyone else in the future.
