Close-up: Areca Palm Trunk

Close-up: Areca Palm Trunk
On the side of our house that faces the road, we have a palm garden. Among the several palm species there is a thick stand of Areca palms (Dypsis lutescens), which serves as a privacy screen. The Areca's leaves, or fronds, also provide shade for that side of the house in the morning.

The trunks of Arecas resemble bamboo. This close-up photo shows a section of the trunk of one of our Areca palms. [Click on the photo to enlarge.]
