Default Palm bark?

This one item seems to be the hardest to find for all of the substrate supplies I am looking for. Does anyone know of a reliable supplier in Canada or the USA?

(I would post in the wanted forum but I am not allowed yet )

Any particular species youre after? seems most "palm bark" isnt the actual bark as that would be hard to process but the ground up leaves when they shed them. that and ground up coconut husks are the only things i have seen available. the actual bark would be palm trunks ground up which i havent yet seen done at least here due to the size of machinery and lack of mushroom growing or landscaping potential.

I am looking for the material that many videos show being pushed into the substrate for springtails and isopods to feed on.

Sort of like these.

Those are chunks of the frond petiole. Shredded or whole coconut husk would be a near equivalent.
