Considering I'm already living in Texas, I prefer mild winters, so I'd much rather have palm trees. We've got a few of them in my area now, but I'd like to see more.

snow in winter, to tell you the truth. i lived in south FL for 9 years and got tired of seeing palm trees all the time. IMO, palm trees are very boring, i love pine trees and the vegetation they have up in New England all whole lot better

Palm trees. I hate snow, cold weather and anything to do with it. If I can't wear shorts and a t-shirt, then it is too cold for me.

palm trees, I got a couple of small ones in my yard that make it through the winter, and there are also some fairly large ones around the city, they are pretty rare though,but who would've thought.

I couldn't live without the four feet of snow we get annually. How else could I make my nude snow angels?

We have a potted palm tree in our living room. Does that count?

Other great trees grow where the climate allows palm trees. In-fact in Florida & California many tropical flowering trees bloom all year & most trees never lose their leaves. Palm trees mean warmth. Pine trees mean cold.

Give me palm trees
