Many people don't understand what this is. I think its simple, but that might be understandable. So just look at the photo and then at the description and tell ME! In the POLL! Overall its the part of a palm tree were the green, fleshy part turns in to the old barky, crisp trunk! Any comments regarding the photo itself are appreciated (well except spam). TIA. In fact I made this pic on a sunny day on the beach!
