Casuarina trees are a type of invasive evergreen tree that have spread voraciously across The Bahamas. They are concentrated along the coasts which is problematic for multiple reasons. Their shallow root systems and heavy trucks are easily affected by sandy and windy conditions along the beaches. When the tress fall, they often uproot other plants in their vicinity and further disrupt the ecosystems they have overtaken. The facilities team at the Island School have decided to start felling these trees and using the wood for practical purposes. After cutting down the invasive trees, they mill the wood and create furniture for the dormitories and office spaces on campus. The entire Island School campus is now Casuarina-free.
