Palms are not actually a tree. They are a grass. If you were to cut down a palm, the outside is dead and the inside is alive, just the opposite of a tree. The inside is made up of thousands of continuous straws of fiber that carry the water to the top for use by the living part, making them very flexible. They also have an extensive root system that extends up to twice the height of the tree outward in all directions as far the ground will allow. Palm tree roots are thousands of small roots like, you see in you grassy lawn. They only go down about 3 to 4 feet but spread way out to collect water, providing strength and stability.
Palms need to be so tall and skinny so that they can remain flexible, which is important due to the weather conditions of their usual environments.
