Artificial Palm Trees, Made With Passion

Palm Tree Installation

Palm trees are one of nature’s most beautiful designs. With their magnificent display of draping, green leaves, and sturdy trunk, it’s no wonder that so many people aim to replicate their awe-inspiring appearance. For thousands of years, the palm has held a heavy historical significance, from palm leaves being used to fan monarchs and royals to dozens of mentions in the Bible and the Quran.

These days, the palm tree holds a more secular place in society. Its quintessentially tropical feel has people all over the world displaying palms with pride in public buildings, museums, hotels, event spaces, and even leisure facilities.

Why are artificial palm trees so popular?

The UK is not the ideal place for raising tropical plants, which makes growing and maintaining palm trees no easy feat. Artificial palms provide all the impressive look and feel of natural plants, without the challenge of maintaining their health. You can also enjoy beautiful palm trees indoors for years to come with zero maintenance cost.

When designed and manufactured to the high quality you can expect from our team, artificial palm trees have the same majestic appeal as any you’d find in a genuine tropical setting. Their dramatic impact is only heightened by the realisation that they’re not actually real palm trees, but impeccably made replicas.

Understanding Artificial Foliage

artificial-plants and trees indoors DubaiNot unlike the natural world, artificial foliage comes in all shapes, colours and sizes. You can find it in the form of exquisite, life-sized olive trees in the finest of hotels and palaces, to simple and effective potted plants neatly lining office space. We encounter artificial foliage each and every day and the world is brighter for it.

Craftmanship of Artificial Foliage

Replicating something that nature does so effortlessly is no mean feat as plants and trees are complex structures perfectly designed to carry out their purpose. It takes patience, planning and raw skill to create and when it’s done correctly, it is indistinguishable from the real thing. A true likeness of the source flora is often the target when designing artificial foliage and to achieve this, it takes a long time, genuine artistic vision and a delicate hand.

The Complexity of Artificial GreeneryA gentle and artful touch is a requirement when assembling artificial plant wall panels, for example. This is not a craft undertaken by machines but by creative human beings who understand what constitutes an aesthetically pleasing end-product. Arranging foliage piece by piece so that it fits naturally within its context is something that takes practice and a lot of time. This process of assembling the whole piece by hand really allows for amazing customisation. Incredible green walls, for example, with vibrant complexions utilising colours meaningful to a particular business or individual, can act as an extension of an entity’s ethos or style.

Benefits of Artificial Trees & Plants

One of the most useful characteristics of artificial greenery is the ability to personalise it precisely to a specific taste or need. One may have the desire to brighten up the entrance of an office or work space with a colourful selection of hanging baskets. Perhaps a series of large, realistic trees with dense canopies to obscure the ceiling of a restaurant giving a natural and unique dining experience. Of course, striking, unnatural colour palettes can have their place as well.

Undoubtedly, using artificial foliage in place of living foliage has its benefits, obviating the need for watering and trimming which is essential and time-consuming maintenance for living foliage. When it’s not practical to employ the use of live plants and trees in your space for the aforementioned reasons or any other, you may find that artificial foliage is what you have been searching for.

The Practical Use of Fake Plants

Endless Possibilities on Artificial BotanyProducts that utilise artificial foliage are particularly suitable when faced with extreme weather conditions. Locations that endure extreme temperatures, both hot and cold, will benefit from the use of non-living greenery. Many beautiful species of trees and plants would be simply unable to survive the punishing sunshine and heat of Middle Eastern summers or the wicked chill of northern Norwegian winters. One can rest assured that artificial botany is the answer when seeking beauty under these circumstances.

Where an item of artificial foliage is going to be subjected to harsh sunlight, it would be wise to use foliage with dedicated UV protection. This is a chemical compound especially designed to combat the colour fading associated with artificial foliage that has experienced heavy exposure to strong sunlight. Treelocate can provide this feature with its very own UVSILX protection which is sure to preserve the integrity of the foliage and the vibrancy of its colour well into the future.

A further fantastic feature is FIRESILX fire resistant coating. Fire resistant material is a requirement for foliage that is placed indoors, in public places in many instances so as to meet fire safety regulations. All of the artificial foliage products on offer at Treelocate feature this option which guarantees that each product meets the British Building Standards requirements. With this borne in mind, one can sleep soundly knowing that any artificial foliage within buildings provide charm and elegance without any degree of compromise with respect to safety.

Low Maintenance Artificial Plants

Buying Artificial Trees & Plants in Dubai

Heres our guide to buying artificial plants and trees in Dubai and The UAE

Trees, plants and flowers make your living space look more vibrant and alive, especially during the darker, colder months of the year. But who has the time to maintain the upkeep of these plants, flowers, or trees? The only thing worse than a lack of plants around the home or office, is dead plants around the home or office. And that can be just as depressing. For those of us that simply don’t have the time or who like me have perfected the art of killing every plant we’ve bought, there is a growing market for artificial trees, plants, and flowers in the UAE. Regardless of if you are decorating a lobby, office, villa or even a large open room for a special event, there are a huge variety of artificial plants & flower options available, including plastic and silk all available from Foliages Artificial Plants & Flowers Making LLC in Dubai.

But for the occasional artificial ficus tree and maybe a decorations during the holidays, most people don’t put much thought into artificial plants and trees. But they really are a great way to change the ambiance of any space. They can set a mood of welcome and relaxation, brighten dark corners in offices and best of all they don’t die. With a very small amount of care and cleaning, artificial plants, flowers and trees can look great for many years.

This handy guide will offer you some advice on what to look for when buying artificial trees and plants from our website.

What is an artificial plant?

Our artificial plants and trees are crafted to mimic the floral nature that just isn’t possible to grow here in the UAE and more extreme climates. Their purpose is to be an alternative to actual live plants and trees for decoration of areas and relieve you of the maintenance that comes with caring for fresh, live plants. They are also a great option for people suffering with allergies to various plants and flowers, and those who are sensitive to flower pollen. Some of our plants, trees and flowers are made of high quality silk, but the majority of our artificial plants are made of various plastic. In some cases our exterior uv proof foliage UVsilx™ range of plants and foliage needs to be of a thicker plastic to with-stand the extreme heat and temperatures that they would be exposed to in the Middle East. We also have a range of inherantly fire-retardant foliage FireSilx&trade for increased safety and peace of mind, without sacrificing appearance. We a getting more and more of the hospitality industry using our products along with interior designers and luxury home stagers.

Artificial Trees

The main benefit of owning an artificial tree is that it improves the look and feel of whatever space the tree is placed in. Also, other benefits come from not having to feed, water, and the maintenance to keep a live tree trimmed and looking at it’s best. There is also the huge saving that comes from not having to replace trees when they die. You can achieve the perfect look you desire and maintain the fresh feel with minimal effort.

First, you will need to consider what type of artificial tree you want to buy. The type of tree needs to reflect the overall theme of the room it is going into. A rustic living room would look a little odd with a banana tree sitting in the corner. In the same way a modern hotel room with artificial topiaries would look just as strange. So it’s a great idea to know which tree will fit in with a room’s interior decor and design.

Types of Artificial Trees

Think of a decorative tree and the chances are that there is an artificial tree alternative to it. Some of our custom-made trees are quite ornate and intended to be eye catching, while others are more subdued and classic-looking. Note that there are several artificial trees specifically designed for exterior use and are quite tough and durable. These exterior trees are created with our UV Resistant foliage that is made to withstand the UV rays from the sun. Some of our more popular outdoor artificial tree types include olive trees, buxus trees, yucca trees, cycas palms and eucalyptus trees. These are great for placing around pools or balcony areas as well as entrance ways and on hotel lobbies.

In addition to exterior options, there are many artificial trees that work great indoors too. Along with ficus trees, areca palms, larger olive trees, and bamboo trees can make any room look more welcoming and vibrant.

Artificial Plants

The benefits of owning artificial plants include the low maintenance needed to keep your home looking vibrant and alive. Further bonuses come from the fact that we can provide or create for you different arrangements for different seasons, themes, and holidays. When it’s time to change the theme, just switch the artificial plant with the current theme and store away the other until it is needed again. The artificial plant will look just as good next season as did this one.

Artificial plants are meant to be a replacement to live plants. They require little time and energy to keep them looking healthy. Also as with our artificial trees, our artificial plants can be found made from various materials such as silk and plastic. They also have wire running through them so that they can be adjusted and manipulated if need be.

Types of Artificial Plants

We stock a huge range of artificial plants from azalea and petunia to ferns and yuccas in various colours and sizes. Both flowering and nonflowering varieties of artificial plants are available. Just as with artificial trees, it is important to choose the right artificial plants and flowers to fit the look and feel of the area that they will be going into.

Artificial Tree & Plant Arrangements

Many of our products available in our shop are tree, plant and flower arrangements specifically chosen with our high quality fibreglass plant pot range to give you the complete solution. Of course, there is also an option to have a custom-made arrangement which can extend well past what can be expected from our collections of artificial tree and plant arrangements.

Feel Happier!

Few things make a living space look more vibrant and alive than do plants and trees. Whether it be an exterior space or interior area of the home, plants and trees bring things to life. Many people feel that just the sight of plants makes them feel happier. To get that good feeling, without having to deal with all the maintenance for live plants and trees, we have a large variety of artificial alternatives to choose from. With so many different types of artificial plants and trees available, you can find the perfect mix for any home or office.
