If you have stayed with us at Nisbet you may have noticed that many of the palm trees were missing their fronds. This is caused by a lethal yellowing disease that has spread throughout the Caribbean that affects the mature palm trees.

Our team at Nisbet is doing our part to save the palm trees you have grown to love and expect when you arrive at a tropical island such as Nevis.

Andrew (grounds supervisor), Winston and Tyrone treat our palm trees every 3 months with antibiotic injections into the trunks of the trees. This is not a cure for the lethal yellowing disease, but simply prolongs the life of the palms.
