PALM TREES AND THE USES

PALM TREES AND THE USES

PALM TREES AND THE USES 

Palm trees come from a family of plants called Arecaceae, and although you may have a vivid image in your mind of a classic tropical beach scene, you may not know that there are actually over 2000 different kinds growing in hot climates all over the world, from rainforests to deserts. 

In fact, palm trees are among the most beneficial plants in tropical countries, because of their wide geographical distribution and many uses.

USES OF PALM TREES 

1. PALM OIL: Palm Oil is a widely-used edible vegetable oil that comes from the fruit of oil palm trees, and its versatile uses make it often referred to as a ‘miracle ingredient’ for so many products. It’s also a major player in beauty products including palm kernel oil for body lotions, or bleached palm oil for soap.

2. BEVERAGES: One example would be Palm wine, also known as palm toddy" or "toddy’. This is a sweet and milky alcoholic beverage produced from the fermentation of sap of different palm species, including Palmyra, date palms, and coconut palms.

3. CONSTRUCTION AND CRAFTS: Palm trees are regularly used as constructive building material for house walls, rafters and roofing. The fibrous wood is pulled apart and woven together to produce thatch for roof coverings, and logs for bridges. The fiber can also be woven to make carpet and wall coverings, as well as practical household items such as brooms, baskets and even furniture.

4. WAX: Some of the best wax available for scented candles come from palms. This is because palm wax is an all-natural, renewable and environmentally-friendly resource that offers more choice for candle makers who are looking to market more sustainable products.

5. LEAVES: Forget the oil, the wood and fruit; palm leaves (or palm fronds) have a diverse range of uses alone, from roof thatch, garden fencing and weaving to fuel and nutritional feed for livestock.
