After more than 10 years in my small plot of back garden, the palm tree had grown in girth to over 3 feet in diameter. Centipedes nested inside the trunk and crawl into the kitchen. All the cow grass had withered and the soil is exposed.
I got a contractor to uproot and take it away before it cracks the retaining wall of my back garden. I just can't believe this palm tree could be so water thirsty and large as Singapore does not have palm plantations. The other type of palm tree you see in Singapore grows slim and tall.
