Terms and Conditions for - Mission: Palm Trees

Mission Statement

MissionPalmTrees.com, a division of Picture Rocks Networking LLC, was created with the purpose of promoting the passion around palm trees. Whether for conservation needs, educational interests, helpful tips and related recreational areas, along with added fun items for those who love palm trees. We do this by offering the best website resource available via any device. We help those learning about palm trees, or those visiting areas with palms trees, and those who just love anything related to palm trees to have the best all-around source of information for their own knowledge, needed information, tips, plus related trips, adventures and experiences.

Our aim is to provide valuable information about palm trees, plus applicable findings to interested people for their natural, conservation, ecological, tourist, touring, travel and recreational value.

In doing so, we continuously research what's needed to provide this information. That includes current gardening, palm identification, landscaping, environmental needs, regional interests, food-related, touring, and/or purchasing and growing needs associated with palm trees. We research related areas including authentic palm tree details, tropical areas, beaches & towns, as well as people, and situations. In doing this we interact with other people of similar interest, as well as researchers locally, throughout the country, and internationally.

We don't claim to be ecologists, environmentalists, environmental scientists per se, horticulturists or other scientific specialists, or historians. But we do research information for our pages, and attempt to use the most authentic sources, as best as we can. If we discover errors, we fix them asap. Our research aim is to be as accurate and genuine as possible. It's why we provide documentation when needed, with all sources listed on our Documentation Page.

We add our own photographs whenever we can, or those taken by our friends and relatives - with their permission. We also locate photographs to reflect related subjects. If photographs are from other sources, we give credit Per Licensing. In support of our research and authorship of content, we maintain productive/related memberships, as well as credentialing.
