Nipa palm

In estuaries and coasts, lives a special palm
Found in many Asian countries
Including the Philippines, Indonesia, and Vietnam

Near mangroves, it is commonly found
Unusual, for only its leaves grow above surface
While the trunk grows below-ground

Vinegar and alcohol are made from its sap
Its leaves, used as materials in roofs and baskets
Biofuel that requires no arable land on the map
