Palm tree is an important tree in Africa. It is mostly grown in the southern part of Nigeria. It is always a tall solo stem tree without branches but has fronds. The Palm tree parades a few species which could short, average height or extremely tall (like the wild type).

There are many products we can get from the palm three. Some you may have known, and some you may not have known. These products include: broom, palm wine, palm oil, palm kernel, palm fruit, palm kernel oil, wood or plank and frond stall.
