    fronded trees

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to give me your considered opinion concerning the interpretation of the word in bold in the following sentences?

    A house in Los Angeles, lined with tall fronded trees.

    fronded trees = palm trees

    V.

    Frond - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

    New word for me. I've only ever read palm trees never fronded trees. Live and learn,eh.
    Although I don't think you have a complete sentence there. ( In case you were wondering.)

    Not a teacher.

    Re: fronded trees

    So it doesn't have to mean palm trees, does it? It sounds likely for the location, though.
