Dead Trees

Coconut and Palmyra palms are common here. However in the last 10-15 years we see a lot of trees with no heads. It is strange but it is happening. I asked the local farmers and they said it was a beetle that ate into the heart of the tree and killed it.

It is sad to see trees without their crowing glory. Dead trees are no good to the environment in fact they are dangerous to be let alone as they could fall on someone. Years ago one of my cousin’s in laws got killed when he was driving a pickup truck through his plantation.  One such neglected, dead  tree suddenly fell on him. It was a freak accident but it did cost him his life.

I wonder why people leave dead trees unattended to. I wonder if they think why waste more money on a dead tree? I am not sure But this is irresponsible to say the least.

I took this picture while on a road trip last year.
