Plastic Petticoat Palm Tree

A unique and lovely addition to any diorama!

Our Plastic Petticoat Palm

Our plastic petticoat palm tree will add a bit of green and interest to your diorama or school project. We have plenty of animals to go with the landscape you create. Do you make model railroad layouts? Our plastic trees could lend some variety. We have seen more realistic trees for model railroaders, so our trees may be best used in layouts for younger engineers, as they are sturdy enough for play. All materials in this plastic petticoat palm tree has passed the required testing, as these trees are sold as toys for kids 3 and older. The name "Petticoat Palm" is stamped in small letters on the bottom of the tree's base. Therapists like to use our realistic models for sand trays. Check out our other tree, flower, and plant replicas, toys and gifts.

About Palm Trees

In the broadest definition from Wikipedia, "a tree is a plant with an elongated stem, or trunk, supporting leaves or branches". Under this definition, palms, bamboo, and tree ferns are included as "trees". Some definitions attempt to narrow this to what most of us consider trees by naming specific height or use for lumber. However, when it comes right down to it, a 100-foot tree is still basically a plant, like any other bush, flower, or crop plant.

Palms are represented by the botanical family of Arecaceae, with about 2600 species known. Palms prefer warm temperatures, and are restricted to warm-temperate to tropical regions of the globe. They do, however, inhabit every habitat within that region, from desert to rainforest. Most palms are recognizable by their charactaristic cluster of broad leaves atop an unbranching trunk.
