My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited

In Samoa the coconut tree is known as the “Tree of Life”. It is reported that the coconut tree has helped to sustain life in Samoan Islands more than any other plant. Both in local uses and as export products, such as Copra, coconut cream and the whole coconut. In the early 1980’s coconut tree exports amounted to around 58% of the value of Samoan exports. There has been declines but currently there is a healthy come back, and again the tree is seen as a potential source of economic livelihood.
