The palm tree was a type of tree found various places in Faerûn.
The beetle palm could be found growing in the midwood area of the forest of Cormanthor. They could grow to over 100' (30 m) and took their name from their smooth, black bark, which resembled a beetle's shell. The wood was oily and burned easily, with less smoke than other woods.
