I dream of the day when Vancouver can plant row upon row of Phoenix Canariensis and rip out all those ugly trachycarpus fortunei.

Trachycarpus fortunei can be a fine looking palm, but they're not an avenue palm imo.
Plant them under a big old Douglas Fir (or whatever other big trees are in Vancouver), and they can look spectacular.

I agree, they're beautiful and all but Phoenix dactylifera looks better to me.

Me. Except a few ornamental gardens, I'd prefer seeing trees that belong here and fit with the landscape.

"Exotic" trees wouldn't really fit the landscape anywhere in Massachusetts.

I've never been a fan of Phoenix palms in general. I associate them with dry places. Although there are some in Florida.

But wouldn't you agree that sabal palms fit very well with the landscape of Mobile and New Orleans?
