The Coconut Tree

You have eaten coconuts but have you seen coconut trees?

Coconut trees grow in the lowlands and on mountainsides.  They are planted in rows by the roadside as decoration.  They grow up to thirty meters high or more.  They start bearing fruits when they are about seven years old.  They grow and live until they are about a hundred years or more.
