Does anyone make metal 54mm palm trees for desert battles such as the Sudan?

Aside from the occasional sale of eBay, I have been unable to find any 54mm trees.

I appreciate any leads on a source.

Pegasus do some in plastic if that helps?
If you want metal then Dorset Soldiers have some but they are rather stylised.

The Pegasus plastic would be a short palm but not out of place for 54mm next to a building.

I have some tall plastic ones. Cake trees. Very cheap.

Scroll to the bottom of the page. This company does architectural supplies and makes metal palm trees.

I was going to say something similar. The closer we get to Christmas, the more big palm trees will start popping up in stores.

Jim, Check out the recast Marx Palm Trees and Ferns sets that you can find on Ebay. Prices vary, so shop around.

These came in Capt Gallant, Flintstones, Zorro and several Dino sets.
A little drybrushing and these look pretty good. Plus the ferns are useful……Bill

It doesn't get much better than King & Country Toy Soldiers. But it ain't cheap.

The further from Christmas you get, the lower the price for the trees. Between Christmas and New Years I make the rounds of Christian Book Stores for all sorts of on sale Nativity pieces.

My colleague Bill P. has a lot of tall plastic/rubbery palm trees that he found in one of those party supply stores or they might have been from Nativity scene sets. Really nice trees, I will have to keep an eye open for them.

Depending on visual style and size that you want, you can also scout traditional flats.

E.g. Berliner Zinnfiguren
