Other uses of the palm tree and coconuts
The coconut palm is perhaps known best for the coconut fruits it bears, but has a variety of other uses. It has to be noted that in modern society, the use of the tree has been replaced by modern development. For example: the stem of the tree was traditionally used in boat building, but now it is commonly replaced by fiberglass. Nevertheless, on local islands most of the old practices are still in place and listed below.
