Bringing Home Palms...Allowed?

Hi everyone

I like to know if we can bring back to the states,some palm branches from Palm Sunday service. Is it considered a "vegetation" by the USDA?

Thanks in advance for your input!

If you are talking about full length palm fronds you certainly won't bring them as carry on. The end can be very rigid and spear like. As to USDA..I would hope not. Palms can harbor numerous mites.
