Yes, it is. There's only one guy that does this type of palm carvings up in Northern San Diego County (as far as I know).

This guy did several carvings on some palms several years back on his street palms in front of his house. The city made him cut them all down. :>( The city reps said it was unsafe (which couldn't be farther from the truth).
