Palm fronds (also known as palm leaves) are a resource item found in Stranded Deep. Being a basic resource item, palm fronds are considered a crucial material for many building recipes.


Palm fronds can be obtained by cutting down palm trees.


Palm fronds are primarily used as a crafting ingredient for structural builds - pieces of a basic shelter, such as roofs and walls, require the use of palm fronds for creating more effective designs, while other necessities, such as beds, require the use of palm fronds for adding a softer surface for comfort.

In addition to being used as a crafting material, palm fronds, as well as sticks, can be used as fuel for lit campfires. They can be placed in a campfire either while it is burning or after it has burned out.

Palm fronds are also used in solar still to produce drinkable water.  While holding the frond, you look at the base of the still and left click to add.  Each frond will produce one unit of water, which can be drunk directly from the still, or placed in a flask to be stored for later while more fronds are used to distill more water.
