The $20K/Year Date Forest That Surrounds the Welcome to Fabulous Downtown Las Vegas Sign

IMG_3090

There is about 100 date trees that surround the Welcome to Fabulous Downtown Las Vegas sign. Each tree produces about 100 pounds of Medjool dates. Right now they all drop to the ground but they should be collected?

We would wait for them to drop and then eat them when we discovered them last year. They tasted better than the ones you buy in the store!

Just think if everyone in Las Vegas had date trees planted instead of palms that don’t produce fruit. If it doesn’t produce fruit you should cut it down and plant a lemon tree or almond or pomegranite or apricot… It should be a law like in colonial times to keep dust down and transient speculators that like gentrification.
