Trees n Bushes 14 Cuban Royal Palm Tree

NF Trees n Bushes 14

Welcome to the first edition of the NF Tree n Bushes meme.

 I have always liked trees and have lots of them in my files that I never got around to post. I assume that many of you have it too. So, for this meme is not about running around taking shots today. You can as well dig in your files for those gems never posted. Trees and bushes comes in many shapes and forms and they look different as the year go by. Many of them has flowers and are showing autumn colors. They change always.

This is a palm tree I saw once and never forgot. It was in CostaRica on a birding trip. I was happy to get two shots of it. My fellow travelers did not care for trees and were striding along ahead of me, and they had long legs.. I have been searching for a name several times. Today I found it. :)  Acc to wiki it is mostly an ornamental tree. But also for construction and medical uses.
