I'm guessing all of them but the tree.
Is a palm tree technically a tree??
I decided to look up whether a palm tree is really a tree or not. I found this, which I think will clear up any confusion!
"...., a palm 'tree' is not really anything, but only what people say it is. The billions of people on the earth today and all who lived before them, have created a word 'tree' which includes palm trees. This is the classic dictionary definition. Although the word is different in each language, the concept, the idea of what a 'tree' is, remains the same.
In very recent times, a small number of people have been devoting themselves to the study of plants. To help them organize their field, they borrow some of our words and give them new meanings. Within the field of Botany, our word 'tree' is now a technical term which does not include palms.
- So, by botanical definition, a palm tree is not a tree.
- For the billions of ordinary people on the planet, and in their dictionaries, a palm tree is a tree.
If two different groups use two different definitions, then there are two correct answers. But neither is what it 'really' is because it isn't 'really' anything! "
In summary a palm tree is both a tree and not a tree!
