Nothing says Florida like a palm tree, so it's fitting that the state tree is sabal palm. Oddly enough though, the sabal palm is not a true tree, and as a palm, is more closely related to grasses. 

The bud of the tree is edible and is known as "heart of palm" and swamp cabbage, the trunk and fronds were used to build shelter, and various fibrous parts were used to make cordage. 

These plants are fairly tolerant of salt spray on foliage but are intolerant of salt in the root zone.
