There are about 2,600 species of palm tree. Palms are well-known in warm climates. Most have a single trunk with large evergreen leaves at the top. Coconuts are the fruit of the coconut palm. Coconuts have many uses. Their white flesh is eaten and made into coconut milk and coconut oil. Other parts are used to make ropes, brushes, and charcoal.
