Coconut is a tropical perennial plant.
The tree will grow so high until 30 meter in height.
The stem of the coconut trees that grown on the beach area are usually not straight, cause influenced by the strength and direction of the wind.
But the trees that grown on the middle land with dense cultivation's space are usually so high and straight.

Here, especially in Java, coconut wood is called 'glugu'.
Glugu is usually used as material for building or furniture.
And sometime it's used as material for so many handycrarfts.

This wood is medium quality of wood for building.
Only the woods that come from the old coconut trees that used as building material, yes more than 20 years old.
The old woods have high density of fiber, and also have a good pattern.
Only the straight wood that used for building or furniture.
The columnar or tubular shape look so decorative.
So many traditional houses use coconut wood for their poles or columns.
We can find so many huge sofa that made from these woods, look so exotic and warm.

You can see so many cut or holes on the wood that used as 'climb path'.
Yes, this path is used by the farmer to pick their coconut and pruning the old leaves stalks.

On the old tree, we can fine so many ferns that grow wildly on the cut or holes.
Look so decorative...
Sometime, we can find the wild orchids grow so healthy there.

Next, we will talk about the root.
Thank you for following...
