Default From Sea To Shining Sea...

We all have our own definitions of what constitutes a state that can grow palm trees. Obviously, some have been grown in very climatically hostile regions. However, I define a palm tree state, or what I call a Palm Belt State as a state where palms are grown outdoors (year round) and paid for by state and county governments - or commercial businesses. Only a region where palm trees have a fair chance of success will a state or county government (or commercial business) risk taxpayer money or company profits to grow them.

So, what states are those?

For certain:

Hawaii
California
Nevada
Utah
Arizona
New Mexico
Texas
Louisiana
Mississippi
Alabama
Florida
Georgia
South Carolina
North Carolina

Probables:
Virginia
Oregon
Washington
