Biologically speaking they do not have branches. The leaves grow directly out of the trunk.

The leaf petioles could be called branches, I suppose that's what it is pertaining to.

Each one of those "branches" is in fact one leaf with a stem and many leaflets.

"Gift" as a verb is not common usage in US English. "Gives me a present of" or just "Gives me" is better.

Apparently coconut trees technically aren't even trees. They're more closely related to cucumbers.

They are palms. But they have nothing to do with cucumbers. Actually, as coconuts are monocots and cucumbers are dicots, they couldn't be much further away from each other inside the flowering plants. Where did you get that information? :O

Is it possible you confused them with watermelons?
