Coconut tree with v-cut damage to leaves and rotting center. Kaeleku, Hana, Maui.
Lowland wet roadside.
Looked like possible CRB at first, with leaf damage and dying center, but trees look regularly pruned, and a lot of other coconut trees in Hana seem to have the heart rot(?) problem. No similar v-cut leaf damage signs on nearby trees. Google Street View of location - http://goo.gl/CDXW73
