Palm trees can be found in desert, sub-tropical, and tropical climates.
Some palm trees can live through snow.
Coconut palm tree leaves range in length from 6 - 9 feet (1.8 - 2.7 meters).
Palm trees do not have branches (the leaves act like makeshift branches).
Unlike other types of trees, palm trees do not have growth rings.
Palm trees produce coconuts, dates, acai fruit, betel nuts, and palm oil.
The Quindio wax palm tree can grow up to 197 feet tall (60 meters). It is also Colombia's national tree.
