Describe an important tree or plant in your country. v. 1

Describe an important tree or plant in your country. You should say: what it is where it grows how it looks like and explain why is it an important tree/plant in your country. [You will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you are going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish. ]   Model Answer 1: Bangladesh, apart from being home to the largest mangrove forest in the world, is also a land of many other kinds of trees, making it one of the greenest and beautiful countries in the world at the same time. However, today we will pick only one of those many different kinds of trees and talk about it. The common name of this tree, I am about to talk, is “Date palm”, and its scientific name is Phoenix Dactylifera. However, in Bengali language, it is called “Khejur” tree. Being a tree of the palm family, it grows pretty much all over Bangladesh whether we want to grow them in a field or our front yard. It can be anywhere between 15 feet to 60 feet tall, and its trunk is about 10 cubic feet thick at its bottom. Having leaves of about 5 to 6 feet long (depending on the size of the tree), its leaflets are thin and pointy, and can be about one to one-and-half feet long and 0. 75 inch wide. The date palm tree is an important tree mainly because of its juice and syrup which is just loved by everybody in my country during the winter time. In fact, the livelihood of many people depends on this tree since they collect the juice of this tree use it to make “jiggery” (or “Gur”) in our local language which, in turn, is also used to make some really savoury and sweet dishes. Its trunks are also used to make furniture and timbers (suitable for structural uses) while its leaflets are also used to make beautiful baskets and mats. Besides, the fibre of date palm trees is used to make rope and packaging materials of real high qualities. Thus, the date palm has remained a tree of great economic value in my country for thousands of years.
