Yeah they can stand but most oaks don't look like that.

Sabals aren't ugly either lol.

There's over 2000 species of BEAUTIFUL palms, all unique, some are vining, some are 100 ft. tall trees, some are only spiny bushes, and some are even aquatic. But oaks,....they all look similar. But old oaks have a very nice look to them.
