Coconut palms are popular landscape plants in Sri Lanka. Copra (the dried "meat" of the coconut seed), from which oil is extracted, is a significant cash crop in Sri Lanka. Coir, the fiber from the fruit, is used in manufacturing. The fruits, or coconuts, yield several food products at different stages of development, and the leaves are used for thatch or are woven into baskets, mats and clothing. Even the trunks are used for construction.
