During the first half of the 20th century a large amount of coconut palms were planted across the South Pacific in order to harvest the coconut fruit produced by the palms. Coconut palms can produce coconuts fruit for up to 70 years and once the trees fruit bearing years are up they’re cut down and harvested for their Palmwood. Palmwood is used to make everything from houses, flooring, furniture and jewelry supplies like beads.
