    Strictly speaking, most palm trees in California today are not from the state, particularly the ones in southern California. Palm trees by nature require a lot of moisture in their soil and a lot of water, and really cannot survive in the semi-arid climate of southern California without human intervention. Most of the palm trees in Los Angeles were planted there at the turn of the 20th Century for aesthetics to give the likes of Hollywood a more glamorous look. Though they do grow naturally in some areas, they are mostly non-indigenous to the state.
