We rarely lose a coconut tree but when we do it's most often done in by an unseen killer that burrows into the heart of the tree from below. There's not much we can do to save the tree and this is what we find when we take it down. In our experience this has happened only to fairly young trees.

I'm stuck with a bucket of water....
...and a pile of sand while everybody else is swimming. The Caribbean's behind me with really high waves today and nobody'll give me a surf board.
