Palm Tree Retires

Our beautiful palm tree that has been with us since we moved in, is gone. It was a few feet tall when we moved in and now it is over 15 feet in height, from the ground to the first frond. It has been competing with the its neighbor, the Giant Redwood but this week, it lost the battle. If the Jubaea Chilensis (it's correct name) were further from the redwood, and complimented the aesthetics of our front yard, I don't think I would have considered selling. Of course, getting a good price for the tree didn't improve the tree's fate. Here are a few of the many photos of the removal process.
