The first palm tree photo was taken a week ago at Laguna Beach where we spent half a day enjoyed the mild sun and soft breeze. The second palm tree photo was taken by Laguna Lake where we take our walks several times a week. Palm trees are strong and sturdy, grown in a warmer climate. Their roots are short but trunks are hardy. Forty or fifty feet tall palm trees can easily be transplanted to distant locations and reestablished roots without too much stress.
