Small Coconut Tree

Small Coconut Tree


The word “small” is a relative word in the size of coconut trees. For coconut trees, the dwarf version of this tree is about 40 feet in height, which is still bigger compared with other small trees. Dwarf trees are a great candidate for landscaping purposes on roadside. They are typical tropical trees, so they are not suitable for growing in cold zones.


The small coconut tree can be purchased in most local tree nurseries. Before planting any trees in your garden, you should pick up a place to suit for the size of a fully grown dwarf coconut tree. Generally, they can grow up to 60 feet in height with a spread of 20 feet. You should avoid planting your coconut trees beside any buildings to prevent them from interfering with each other.

You should make sure that the place for your dwarf coconut tree has adequate full sunlight during the day. Although they can tolerate some coarse soil types like clay and sandy soil conditions, a well-drained and slightly acidic soil environment would be perfect for the growth. Since they can resist highly salty conditions, they can be planted on the beach side where most trees cannot survive.

The hole for holding the root ball should be large enough to accommodate the tree. Although you can provide some organic manure as extra nutrients for the tree, you do not have to do that. When the hold is covered with soil, you should apply adequate water to it to help it establish its roots system. You can also apply some palm fertilizers to your tree to make it grow healthier.
