Palm trees are tropical trees and one of the most distinguished features in TropiCraft.
They have striped wood and much brighter leaves than that of normal trees. When destroyed they will drop palm wood and palm saplings. Leaving a grown palm tree alone for a while will cause it to grow coconuts, which drop coconut chunks when broken with a sword. These are used to make piña coladas.
These trees MUST be planted in sand in order for them to grow. Once fully grown, however, the sand may be removed and replaced with any material the player chooses.
