Corypha Umbraculifera தாளிப் பனை

The largest inflorescence tree in the world was once found in large number along around water bodies of Coromandel Coast. This palm was considered as a twin of the king as it protects the lake bund from breaking during monsoon. Cutting the tree during a war was considered as destroying infrastructure of a village or town. Hence, this tree was systematically destroyed since the 10th century. Now it is rare to find in groups Tamil Nadu coast. Planting this tree along water bodies would help to improve the groundwater level and to attract rain clouds during the monsoon season.
