Yet another dead palm tree. The arborist reported in the summer that the palm trees were in sore need of fertilizer. It is not clear if fertility, disease (the stem looked black inside), shock or what might be the issue here. Earlier this year, the tree sprouted a huge number of side leaves. Is there a phyto pathologist in the house?
Oh! Christmas TREE! Judith (building 6) hosted a Christmas party today, and her son brought a TWELVE FOOT Christmas tree, pictured here on the right. They generously offered to leave the tree and come back after Christmas to remove it and clean up. Sweet!
