I really love palm trees, they are so adaptable. I’ve seen them in 50 mph winds bending almost in half and the next day be up-right swaying in a warm breeze. They really are amazing. There are so many of them in Hawaii, I just adore them…..nothing says the tropics like a palm tree. Did you know there were 2600 species of palm trees today? Palms mostly grow in the tropics, but there are 130 types that will grow elsewhere.
The palm tree is used as a symbol of tropical vacations, but in past cutures it was used as a symbol of peace, fertility, and even victory!
