525 trees! That’s how many trees a typical areca palm plantation can grow in an acre without any hassles. These trees have adapted to the dry climate of India and can survive on regular irrigation supplemented by rainfall. As a plantation, they act as windbreaks and reduce the speed of wind in the area, thus also helping reduce soil erosion and related issues. Wondering if these trees are lucrative investments? Areca palm trees are low-maintenance trees and do not require too much expenditure on the part of the farmers. Their return on investment is also very high and virtually guarantees the farmer a great profit. Can you estimate the number of leaves such a plantation could yield every year?
