Coconut trees struck by lightening, Honiton Place, Avissawella, Sri Lanka.

Three coconut trees lying close by were struck by lightening, a few months back.
This tree is sprouting young leaves again.

Coconut trees are frequently struck by lightening during thunder storms. They invariably die off. The timber from them is said to be cursed and is not used in house building in present Sri Lanka. I saw this particular tree spouting leaves again.
