Since Palm Trees are being added in presumably 1.15, a new tree variant should be added to increase diversity and could also allow for potential new biomes in the future.
Coconut palms and Date palms, which are presumably the type that Minecraft’s palm trees will be based on, are not the only type of palm tree in the world, and Fan Palms are arguably more common in everyday life.
Fan Palms would simply be a different variant of palm tree, like Oaks and “Large” Oaks (not talking about the 2x2 Dark Oak trees), that can spawn in Minecraft. Fan Palms would be based on the California Fan Palm, and contain the same type of leaves and wood as in regular Palm Trees, except their leaves would be more bunched up like a California Fan Palm. They also could have much more palm fronds/husks than a regular palm tree. It’s up to the developers.
Anyways, they would just be a really cool addition to Minecraft since they are so common in everyday life if you live in the United States’ West and even East coasts, or if you live in coastal Mexico or Latin and South America. They are just extremely common. Fan Palms could also potentially spawn in different biomes, but of course these are just ideas.
