Red Palm is neither a softwood nor a hardwood, palm falls into the category of monocots, which also includes bamboo, grass, banana, rice, wheat, corn, etc. Palm woods have no growth rings,
Red Palm is highly variable in weight, strength, and hardness properties. The trunk is a gradient between the strong fibrovascular bundles, and the softer cellulose structure. Toward the outer wall of the trunk, the density of the wood is the greatest, and gradually becomes lighter, softer, and weaker towards the soft core, Which is opposite of most trees, but then this isn't a tree.....it's grass.
