These are lovely palm trees, interesting. Do they grow any taller than this:-)

These palms are babies. lol They have the largest trunk diameter (more than 6 feet/ 2 meters) of any palm in the World and grow to be at least 80 feet /25 meters tall. They are also very slow growing. There are many large mature trees in the San Francisco Bay Area...some are documented to be more than 130 year old. They are extremely long-lived one really knows how long...from what I've read.
