Which looks better.

To me I like oak trees.
Because palm trees are nothing but a stick with a few leaves at the top lol

Palm trees easily. The idea of having coconuts on trees in my backyard is very cool

I like both. Oaks, especially mature oaks, add an immense amount of character and provide shade, whereas palm trees give off a coastal/tropical vibe and are really good for accentuation. See how they complement each other in urban settings:

Downtown Savannah


The SC Statehouse grounds in Columbia:


Waterfront Park in Charleston:

I'd rather have an abundance of oak trees with some palms to spice it up.

Do people prefer tropical or desert palms?

I am appalled at the level the trolling threads on this site has fallen to.

Couldn't come up with something better than my trees are better than your trees?

C'mon people, if you are going to troll do it right.

By the way, I like being in a climate that allows for both.

Agree 100%

Lol looks like this thread blew up in the troll's face b/c most people seem to prefer both, as do I. What a pathetic attempt.

Where I live I stop and stare when I see Palm trees because they're rare here, regular trees don't stand out to me unless they're my height or very tall.

I also have a thing for Palm trees so I choose Palms.

I noticed they took down the palm trees at the outdoor shopping mall with Ben's Deli. The one that's right by Roosevelt field. Just thought you'd be interested in knowing that.

By the way, I prefer big oak trees. They're beautiful in the fall.
