Palm trees are hands-down my favorite trees. I love the fact that I live in SoCal and I constantly see them wherever I go. On my street alone are many and looking out at them feels like I'm on vacation.

My home is like my vacation, tee-hee.

I hate you.

There's a few Palms around here but not right outside my window or everywhere I go, I mostly see them when I'm on vacation. Palms are my favorite trees too.

I'm seeing more and more palms being used in Atlanta landscaping, and it just feels WRONG.
I'm seeing more and more in New York landscaping (Subtropical plants in general) and it feels right, I just want enough to hold me over until I move somewhere with more Palms lol.

Palms will never lose there fame in my eyes, they'll be special where ever they can grow (which isn't a lot of places).

Palm trees are planted in the parks and gardens of downtown Sandusky, Ohio for the late spring / summer / early fall seasons. During the winter, they are kept in the city greenhouse.

And... how come the palm trees in Florida looks almost dead when they get so much rain and sunshine, while S. California's Palms looks fresh and doesn't get rain at summer
Because Florida palm trees get F'd up from the hurricanes

Florida's palm trees look dead? Looks like people will say anything on C-D. What's next? "Why do Colorado's mountains look so small?" "Why is New York City so country?"

Not quite the same, since it's enclosed, but this one's in the Alps:

Default "stupid" question...

Since people on this thread seem to have an awesome knowledge of tree cultivation, cultivars, climate zones and botanic science, I've always wondered...it's fashionable in the temperate zones to try & grow palm trees, but is the reverse possible ?
I mean : can temperate zone vegetation (deciduous trees, pines, spruce, etc) grow under certain conditions in tropical zones ?

I wouldn't say pines are limited to temperate zones. There are loads of pine forests throughout Florida. People even grow Maple trees here too, and there are more oak trees in my neighborhood then palms.
