Coconut palms rise as high as 30m (100 ft) and often fringe the coastlines of most islands because they are extremely salt-tolerant. Pandanus Palms, another common tree in Tonga, vary in size from small shrubs which are less than one metre tall to medium-sized trees around 20 metres in height. Small forests of pandanus can often be found on the coast.
