Cocos Palms are lively and graceful to look at—Queen Palm, as they call it. With its elegant appearance, it’s often cultivated as ornamental trees worldwide, including Australia.
But they can also be a handful when dead leaves and old fruits start sticking out and growing out of control, competing with native Australian plants.
Hence, before things take a wild turn, consult with an arborist and have your quick-growing Cocos Palms properly managed!
Cocos Palm (Syagrus romanzoffiana) is a medium-sized palm native to South America that grows quickly and has an average height of 12 m. It was later popularised as an ornamental garden tree in Australia and has since appeared on the north coast of NSW and Queensland.
Specifically, it’s a single-stemmed palm characterised by a spiral arrangement of 7 to 25 leaves from its crown, cream-pale yellow flowers, and egg-shaped clustered fruits. Although it’s pleasing to the eyes and initially introduced as a garden ornament, it’s often considered a weed in Australia nowadays.
It’s mainly because of Cocos Palms’ rapid growth and invasive nature. It over competes with native plants in rainforests and along waterways and invades eucalypt forests, disrupting existing ecosystems.
Moreover, if left unattended, Cocos Palm fruits also threaten animal health in neighbourhoods as these often cause severe constipation resulting in dehydration and, eventually death of dogs and flying foxes.
In such cases, tree removal becomes an option.
Although Cocos Palms offer a unique aesthetic appeal in households, resorts, gardens, and even streets, they’re undeniably a problem for native plants once left unattended. It’s considered an invasive species in NSW and Queensland for a reason.
They grow quickly and spread aggressively, threatening native palms and endemic species and altering natural ecosystems. You don’t want that to happen, right?
