State Tree of Kerala, India 
-Here are some of the photos of coconut tree.
Place : Pattambi, Kerala
Date  : June 2010
-Coconut is rarely to be seen in Delhi, with few small trees in odd nurseries or private homes, but there are a few full grown fruiting specimens in the compound of Cambridge School in Rajouri Garden. Here is the proof of that.
-There have not been coconut trees in Delhi because of its dry climate, with just 66 cm of annual rainfall, and acute winter (this year it has gone down to 2.5 degree C a few days back). A few specimens properly cared after survive at few places. These are only full grown fruiting specimens I have seen in Delhi.

efloraofindia:''24082011MR1’’ Do you know that Mongoose eat tender Coconuts Pune: Attaching pictures of a Coconut tree and a Mongoose. This mongoose climbs the tree drops down tender coconuts and eats them. It also eats mangos and yes biscuits too if you offer. extremely active and alert sweet animal. Its body is so supple that easily slides away through the fence. It walks through cable wires for long distances from one building to another exactly at dusk time without ever falling down. 

Nice photograph of the Common Indian Grey Mongoose [Herpestes edwardsii]. 

Excellent photo of coconut tree and mongoose. Rather surprising how it breaks the tender coconut. 
.. the mongoose drops down very small tender coconuts which are not so hard and it can bite.

Palm Trees of Bangalore - RA - Cocos nucifera - Coconut Tree:  The Coconut Palm is a member of the palm family.  
It is the only species in the Genus Cocos, and is a large palm, growing to 30 m tall, with pinnate leaves 4-6 m long, pinnae 60-90 cm long; old leaves break away cleanly leaving the trunk smooth. The term coconut refers to the fruit of the coconut palm.  
The flowers of the coconut palm are polygamomonoecious, with both male and female flowers in the same inflorescence. Flowering occurs continuously, with female flowers producing seeds. Coconut palms are believed to be largely cross-pollinated, although some dwarf varieties are self-pollinating.  
The origin of this plant are the subject of controversy with some authorities claiming it is native to southeast Asia, while others claim its origin is in northwestern South America. Fossil records from New Zealand indicate that small, coconut-like plants grew there as far back 15 million years ago. Even older fossils have been uncovered in Rajasthan & Maharashtra, India.
Interesting and Informative series on palms.

Nice pictures. The ones with Orange fruits are known as 'King Coconut' in Sri Lanka and mainly used for drinking Coconut water.
The orange one is called 'Malayan Dwarf Orange(MDO)' and the green one is a hybrid of WCT (West Coast Tall) and Chowghat Dwarf Green (CDG)
In Indonesia, the orange one is called 'Kelapa Raja' which means 'King Coconut', the same as those in Sri Lanka.

Fwd: PROTECTION OF COCONUT TREE : COOCH BEHAR : 2 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (3)
When we came to Cooch Behar in 1972, there were hardly any brick built houses in this town, other than the palace, govt. offices, some schools and colleges. Every house was an individual unit with lot of space to have trees and to maintain gardens. The floor of the hoses were either of wooden planks or cemented. The side walls and the roofs were of tin.
Each house had few coconut trees. But as the concept of houses changed gradually people opted for concrete structures. But they used to make the house in such a way that coconut trees are accommodated. No other tree was that lucky. I don't know the logic behind this preferential treatment to coconut tree. Now the landscape is totally changed and it is changing very fast. Many multistory building has come up.if you move around in the town you will find many instances of accommodating coconut tree in the house.
Attaching three images of houses accommodating coconut tree.
First image is of a famous cloth shop (LAXMINARAYAN BASTRALAYA) , located at the centre of this town,
Called HARISH PAL CHOWPATHI. When we came here this shop was housed in a tin structure, but the coconut tree was there. In fact the trunk of this tree is at the centre of the shop. Now the shop is in a concrete structure of two floors, but the coconut tree is hail and hearty.
The second image is of a house where the tree is not exactly at the centre but on a side. But it is accommodated.
In the third image the tree is out side the building ,but there are cuts near the wall to accommodate the tree.
Recently this building was given a fresh coating of colour. In his wisdom the owner of the house has applied the same colour on the trunk of the tree (matching ??). The result is in the image. Man, intelligent man thinks trees are to be painted to give a better look. Misplaced conception.
what a wonderful observation.
Its also a story of these three families that are ecologically sophisticated and kindly to a living form.
Cynicals will say its a source of yearly income.
But how much can that be?
I think the most prevailing thought must have been saving the tree, 
any tree, they perhaps would have even if it were a neem or a mango tree.
bless them for being ecologically aware, open minded, and kind hearted. and thank you for bringing this story to us
