Black-Palm Tree

Characteristics -

A tall, narrow tree commonly thought of as a coconut tree. The Black Palm can be up to 100 feet tall, but just 2 feet in diameter. Black palm trees are just about the opposite of hardwood trees. It's a "monocotyledon" without growth rings, and the center of the tree is soft and watery. The woody material is actually extracted from the outer layer of the tree. The Black Palm tree grows in Southeast Asia, and parts of Africa.

Black Palm (Palmyra Palm)

Appearance -

The appearance of "Black Palm" planks is that of black fibers embedded in a lighter tan or light brown colored body. Fibers are more densely packed toward the outside of the tree trunk, becoming more and more sparse toward the center of the tree creating truly unique graining. The center core of the tree is soft and contains none of the darker vascular bundles that give the wood its characteristic look and hardness. (This is nearly opposite of the typical outer sapwood/inner heartwood combination found in "dicot" hardwoods.)

Although Black Palm trees can get up to several feet across, the center of the trunk is filled with a soft, unfigured portion, with only the outer areas of the trunk containing the characteristic colored fibers, so only narrow boards and spindle-stock are normally available. Prices for most sizes of Black Palm should be in the moderate range for an imported tropical wood.


ORIGIN - Southeast Asia and some parts of Africa
