Advertising Disclosure

Per Our Affiliate Agreements

We're Karen and Bill - and we want to be crystal clear about our role in affiliate marketing here.

Indeed, our all-encompassing goal is to be the most helpful, informative internet marketers that we can possibly be - and the best available for your needs in experiencing everything about the passions for palm trees. That is why we make free content and downloads available on

We're providing this Affiliate and Advertising disclosure to be in compliance and provide transparency for visitors of This website is our personal site. [For more on who we are - See our About Us Page.]

Our main purpose is to provide you with great information about appreciating and enjoying palm trees in whatever form that may take.

Additionally our website accepts advertising and receives other forms of compensation.


We love living in our state of Arizona, in a climate where palm trees grow. Because of our passion for palm trees, we like to recommend to others relevant products which we have tried and found to be excellent. These are from companies we have personally bought from and trust in terms of their high quality products, cost-effective pricing, efficiency and personal service.

Those that we haven’t specifically used are carefully investigated, researched and vetted, possibly tested, so we can believe in them to ensure a high quality experience for visitors to our website. We hope our visitors will enjoy the same types of relevant products that we have used, or that we find to recommend for them.

Some of these companies have an "affiliate plan" of which we are a member. This means that when we recommend a product and provide a link to buy it, or sometimes even investigate its details, we receive a small commission whenever someone clicks through to the supplier and buys, or even sometimes just observes the information.

Although not all links on this website are affiliate links, you should assume that all links that leave this website and take you to another website are affiliate links - if they immediately get to a way to purchase a product. You should expect that we will earn a commission if you follow links from our site and make a purchase.

But importantly, this does not involve any additional cost to you, the customer, our website visitor.

Not every business we recommend, speak about, or buy from ourselves has an affiliate plan. Some products or businesses we recommend or sell products from, we may not make money from. We simply recommend them because they're of good quality and have a fit for our website purpose.

We have our "Affiliate Disclaimer" statement on many of our pages, as many have at least some of our affiliate links for recommended products. The Affiliate Disclaimer is there to be transparent for the fact that we use Affiliate marketing to provide income to fund the needs of maintaining this website. An alternate method is showing the word "Ad" at the link, to ensure it's an Affiliate Link.

We want to make sure it is clear that this website is indeed a for-profit venture and we want you to know exactly how income is generated from this website and why.
