Undoubtedly, the popularity of the palm tree is earned the nickname as an extraordinary tree which one proof that all parts of the palm tree can be utilized and have high economic value. Although the majority of Indonesian people only know the palm tree as a producer of oil, more than that, even the palm tree waste has very good potential and prospects.
One of the palm tree waste that has potential and economic benefits is palm fronds. So far, people have only used the palm fronds as animal feed, but with an amount of 40–50 fronds/tree/year, it would be a shame if it was not used optimally.
Another potential of the use of palm fronds that can produce high economic value is palm broomsticks. Not only known in the domestic market, the demand for palm sticks is also selling well in the global market.
Generally, the sticks from palm fronds are used for making broom sticks. However, with the development of innovation and market preferences, palm sticks have been developed into several types of handicraft products such as woven plates to bags.
