No decision on Kihei “Exceptional Trees” nomination by Council

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.

  1. You’ve got to be kidding me – there is nothing “exceptional” about those 4 trees. In fact, there are 9 more just north of those in front of the Luana Kai. While all of them are nice trees, none of them are exceptional. Let’s reserve that status for trees that are truly worthy, such as the true huge and lovely monkeypods on the Kaunoa Senior Center property.
