Three years after the Maui County Arborist’s Committee unanimously accepted KCA member Dr. Marilyn Colvin’s nomination of the “MPQ,” the first four (southernmost) Monkey Pod trees fronting the Maui Schooner Condos makai SKR for exceptional status designation, Council Member Don Guzman (Kahului)scheduled a hearing at his EAR committee on the matter this week (3/18/14)

The matter was deferred when the deputy director of the Administration’s Parks and Recreation Department, who is responsible for trees, including street tress, advised the committee that they now realize that the trees are on private land, not county property as previously reported.
