Question: Which country has the world’s tallest palm trees?
Colombia’s Quindio wax palms are the tallest in the world. Cocora Valley in Los Nevados National Natural Park is full of the towering plants, which can grow to be up to 200 feet tall. Other species of palm, like the coconut palm, top out at around 100 feet, so these giants are in a league of their own. Unfortunately, because they’re specific to certain regions and conditions, they’re in danger of dying out. But scientists are working to preserve the species, which was named Colombia’s national tree in 1985.
The Answer: The correct answer is Colombia.
