A palm tree with anahaw looking leaves, bismarckia nobilis

I saw the strange looking palm trees with fan leaves similar to an anahaw but these are have very smooth trunks. According to a building watchman, the trees came from Saudi Arabia. Someone opined it is a date palm, but I dont believe it. Gentle reader , if you recognize these palm trees please submit your comments at the end of this post.

These palm trees with large fan leaves are identified as Bismarckia Nobilis by Prof. George C. Yao. Here is a wikipedia link.

The palm trees can be found at the front of the multipurpose U.P. Open University along C.P. Garcia Avenue
