In Kayangel State, there are countless old rotten trees throughout the island because of Typhoon Haiyan in 2013. These rotten trees cause problems as these trees became places to breed Coconut Rhinoceros Beetles (Chermel A Lius) that damage crops and farms including coconut and banana trees. Kayangel State currently does not own any heavy equipment and has no means to remove the rotten woods.
