Palm trees are not among my favorite types of trees, but a pineapple palm is a little different. The pineapple shape of the top part of the trunk is what gives this tree so much character. This particular tree has the added effect of a very pretty vine growing through the pineapple shape. I guess I should explain why palm trees are not among my favorites, they are high maintenance requiring frequent trimming of the dead palm leaves. If your tree is well kept and the dead removed regular, then you have a very nice tree. This tree is located outside the back door of my place of employment in Tierra Verde, Florida.
