Dwarf Coconut Palm, aka "Samoan coconut"

Samoan coconut trees are short enough to reach without having to climb high up in the air. This is in contrast to the typical coconut tree we see in Hawaii, which requires bucket trucks or highly skilled climbers to reach the top, either to harvest the coconut, or trim loose branches from falling on visitors.
