Palm trees are part of the Palmae or Palmacea family.  They grown in tropical and subtropical climates in rainforests and deserts.

Did you know....

that there are almost 3,000 different species of Palm trees all around the world?  Each type of Palm has most of the following similar characteristics:  

Leaves - Palm trees have very large leaves that are called "fronds".  They are usually either fan-shaped (palmate) or feather-shaped (pinnate).  

Trunk - Most Palms have tall, cylindrical stems or trunks with no branches.  They look like the pillar or column of a building.  Some trunks are smooth, while others have prickles.

Flowers - Palms are know known for having significant flowers.  The flowers are often small and range in colour from yellow to light green.  

Fruit - Various Palms produce fruit in a range of size and colour.  The most recognizable fruit is the coconut which is produced only on the Coconut Palm (Cocos nucifera).  Date Palms (Phoenix dactylifera) produce sweet edible date fruit.

One popular type of Palm tree is the tall Coconut Palm that produces fruit until its 80th growing season.  They can grow to be 100 feet tall and may have frond canopies 30 feet wide.

Did you know....

that the trunks of Palm trees do not get wider?  As a Palm tree ages, it merely grows taller!

The Wonder 
of Trees


 

 

 

"Even if I knew 
that tomorrow 
the world 
would go to pieces, 
I would still plant 
my apple tree."

~ Martin Luther ~

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"I think that I 
shall never see
A poem as lovely
as a tree.

A tree whose hungry 
mouth is pressed,
Against the earth's 
sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks 
at God all day
And lifts her leafy 
arms to pray;

A tree that may 
in Summer wear
A nest of robins
 in her hair;

Upon whose bosom 
snow has lain;
Who intimately 
lives with rain.

Poems are made 
by fools like me,
but only God 
can make a tree."

~ Joyce Kilmer ~
"Trees" 1914

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"The best time
to plant a tree
was 20 years ago.
The next best
time is now."

~ Chinese Proverb ~
