Canary Island date palms are iconic to Southern California
"In the 19th and early 20th centuries, Los Angeles decorated itself with a diversity of palms to enchant newcomers. Like so many things in Southern California, the palm tree was an import from somewhere else that over time became inextricably symbolic of its adopted home...[but] the Canary Island date palm...[is] on track to disappear...due to the South American palm weevil and Fusarium fungus."
As such, a portion of every sale of this tee will be donated to the city because it has "vowed to maintain trees in areas that are iconic or have historic significance." See: http://www.latimes.com/projects/la-me-palm-trees-dying-skyline-los-angeles/
