Having worked on this article so much, I'd appreciate any comments on whether it's any good. Too simple? Too long? Totnesmartin 14:55, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

It's certainly not too short, that's for sure! Macdonald-ross (talk) 08:07, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

enough for tree[change source]

All folks were not d'accord with tree category, The Principes involves itself a category "Palms", whose life form "arborescent" --Penarc 12:54, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Indeed, there is no such thing as a palm tree. Palms are palms nd are not trees.
They are called palm trees in English, and it helps on this wiki to use some terms with which our readers are familiar. Macdonald-ross (talk) 08:07, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Editing[change source]

The editing had various problems.

  1. Put references immediately after the punctuation mark (eg comma or full point). The prose ends with a full point; the reference is not part of the sentence.
  2. Bold is used on this wiki mainly for terms which are redirected to the page. Don't use them as a substitute for a link. The red links on the page gives an idea of new pages which might be created later.
  3. Scientific names for genus and species are written in italics.

Perennial[change source]

What is this word? and can it be replaced by simpler ones? --— Preceding unsigned comment added by 2a02:f6e:a0ca:0:52:a03f:6faf:dcd4 (talkcontribs) 09:50, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

A perennial plant is a plant that normally lives for more than two years. (Shorter-lived plants are called annuals or biennials.) The term doesn't have to be replaced because it is linked, but you can replace it or explain it if you want. If you do so, I suggest moving it to a separate sentence to avoid making the existing sentence longer. --Auntof6 (talk) 11:17, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

What is the tall palm tree in Los Angels[change source]

I took some pictures for Santa Monica, I like the palm trees. I can not find so high palm tree in some where else.
