Texas Sabal Palm
The Texas Sabal Palm is a large, single-trunk palm that slowly grows to large heights. This tree averages about 50 ft. tall but has been known to reach heights of 70 ft. Like many palms, the trunk, once developed, is covered in old leaf stems. However, the size, color, and trunk development depend on the amount of sunlight provided.
