Old Man Palm Tree

Coccothrinax crinita, is well-known because of its stunning trunk that is covered with thick layer of wool-like fibers. The Old Man Palm is also known as Thatch Palm, Guano Barbudo, Guano Petate, Palma Petate. It is native to Cuba. I have an old one that is twice as big as this palm, but mine is bald. I feel for my old palm, because I am old and I have lost my hair just like my poor palm.
