The nokonoko tree

from w
A neighbour asked us to cut down a large branch of his nokonoko (casuarina, she-oak) tree that came across our compound and then over a shed in another neighbour's back yard. In a suburb you don't hear the sounds of the nokonoko sighing that you may notice along a Fiji beach. The sighing can be both romantic or sad as a gentle breeze moves the branches. The tree doesn't have the usual leaves at all.
