What's the Tree Like?A tall, narrow tree commonly thought of as a coconut tree. Can be up to 100 feet tall, but just 2' feet in diameter. Black palm trees are just about the opposite of hardwood trees. It's a monocotyledon without growth rings, and the center of the tree is soft, punky and watery. The woody material is actually extracted from the outer layer of the tree.
Black Palm grows in Southeast Asia
