The Acai palm may reach one hundred feet in height and has adapted to survive in waterlogged soil in the lowland flood areas along the rivers of northern South America, where it forms large groves. The palm family encompasses over twelve hundred species and is one of the most useful plants for the inhabitants of the rainforest as a vital resource for food, beverages, oils, building materials, tools and weapons.

Leaves may be used for making hats, mats, baskets, brooms and roof thatch for homes; and trunk wood, resistant to pests, is important in building construction. The Acai has been used for thousands of years by the indigenous tribes of the area for its extraordinary nutritional and healing qualities, and Brazilians call it ''Tree of Life.''
