Cultivation and uses[edit] The queen palm is found in most tropical and subtropical areas. It is very popular as an ornamental tree and much used in urban landscaping. However, the fronds die early and must be pruned to keep the tree visually pleasing. Its leaves and inflorescences are used as cattle fodder, especially for milking cows. Its fruits are edible, being sought by birds, as well as by mammals, including some wild canids, such as the pampas fox[6] and the crab-eating fox.[7] The fruits consist of a hard nut surrounded with a thin layer of fibrous flesh that is orange and sticky when ripe. The flavor is sweet and could be described as a mixture of plum and banana.

As an invasive species[edit] The queen palm is reportedly naturalized in Florida, Australia (Queensland and New South Wales), Honduras, and the Island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean.[2] In some areas is known for attracting pests and in some regions it has been classified as a noxious weed.[8][9] In the Australian state of Queensland it has become invasive to the point that it is now restricted by the Department of Primary Industries and most local councils.[10][11] In the United States state of Florida the palm has spread to an extent that it is classified as a category II invasive species.[12] The bases of the pruned fronds remain on the tree for several months and are an ideal breeding place for snails and caterpillars.
