Jeff, I have 10 acres and am running out of easily available space after ONLY 20 years, LOL your pictures show what time (about 30 years) and care can do for palms (or any plant). that said, (and for my purposes) a beautiful 19 year old eucalyptus nitens (and other species as well) that is pushing 70' works better than a beautiful palm at 8'---again for my purposes and needs (which was to restore an over-grazed and over-cut "stump ranch" into something both green and exotic looking).
I had a nice trachycarpus palm at my Mom's place near Medford, Oregon but that was bought as a "specimen" size palm (4' of trunk) and I did not have the money at the time to buy comparative size palms to make a (relatively) quick effect at the new and much larger place here.
