When I thinks palms, I think Washingtonia, Roystonea, CIDP, Coconut, and Sabal and Windmill. Needle Palms are nothing like those others

The Needle looks more like a group of weeds than a freaking palm tree

Needle Palm technically is a palm but ....no real trunk,
both it and Sabal Minor don't look much more "Palm-like" then your average yucca.
Actually some larger yuccas, with trunks, look more like a palm,
like "Giant Dagger" (yucca faxoniana),
native to Chisos Mtns in Big Bend Texas area, they are seen so much in
New Mexico that they seem to be native.
Hardier then most palms, even Santa Fe has a few.

They do trunk a bit when they are older, especially when they are trimmed up, but yeah, they don't really look like true trunking Palm trees.

A. that looks like it's right on the beach, and B. considering that area is Zone 6B to Zone 7A, those have to be protected in the winter, I'm talking about areas where palms are commercially grown and don't have to be protected

I see them everywhere, and more of them as the years go by. Also OR has some too, especially on the southern coast where a greater viarity of palms can grow.

There are some nice tall ones though, this one is not far from my house.

BIG CATS, just an fyi: that is a yucca in your photo. Not a palm. Yuccas are related to lilies and there are many varieties. Some actually have trunks & can get rather tall. The Joshua tree is a good example. But most trunked yuccas aren't very hardy. The hardiest ones don't have trunks & can withstand temps way below 0F.

We have some trunked Yuccas that can grow here, I recall seeing one years ago that was about 6 ft tall over in St. Clair Shores, a Detroit suburb. It belonged to my ex boyfriends parents, not sure which variety it was though, I just remember being floored that something like that could grow here! It was one single trunk, not multi trunked, that's what really made it look so exotic.
