Sometimes we call this tree the Pineapple Tree because its unshaved trunk is a fabric of diamonds like the skin of a pineapple and its feathered fronds look like a pineapple’s crown.  But, while a pineapple is largely a summer fruit, these benevolent palms grace us with greenery year round.  And for the fronds that do, inevitably, brown and sag, we can trim them and build forts.
