National Tree: The Sugar Palm
A tree which gives out a juice to get you pissed – I waxed lyrical about this in another article last year and I can’t be arsed to do it again. Great tree, great laxative, and useful for about a gazillion other things. Not so endangered, but beats the much sought after rosewood tree (good enough to get shot at by Thai commandoes for) and favourite precursor choice for 90s ravers, with a passion for arbophilia and techno, the sassafras.
