The size of their leaves, the excessive amount of seeds are unsightly. No one has
discussed seriously the hazards of palm trees.
Palms should no be planted in roads, sidewalks, close to houses or highways unless
a real good maintenance service is available at all times. When those leaves fall
the could harm many things: people, animals and property. This type of organic
material is hard to dispose, impossible to compost.
On the other hand, palm trees unless you can observe, appreciate them from a distance
are just like a light post with a wig.
My blog is endemismotrasnochado.blogspot.com, now in English.
On the rest of your excellent article I have no comments since I agree
with your observations. Until, next.
