STATES WITH THE MOST "PALM STREETS" AND "SPRUCE STREETS"

Palms and spruces are trees which don't exactly overlap in range (even though they are both native to California--and France--just in different sections). Not surprisingly, in the United States, one is more likely to find "Palm Street" or "Palm Avenue" in places with palms, and also more likely to find "Spruce Street" or "Spruce Drive" in places with spruces. The entire top 5 of "Palm Streets" is in the sunbelt, while 4 of the top 5 of "Spruce Streets" are in the North (with Kansas being the only of the top 5 to not have native spruce trees).

Note that street names below include streets, avenues, lanes, roads, ways, courts and circles. Statistics are "per million people". Note that states with zero are included at the bottom of each list.
