A grove of Monkey pod trees literally overshadows the farmer’s market by the former Suda’s Store (now ABC) on land owned by the Weinberg Foundation on So Kihei Rd in North Kihei. From a distance, the aged stately trees seem fine, but recent “pruning” does not appear to be done in the best manner for the trees. As Maui Time’s Anu asked, ” If Maui is full of tree huggers, then why is it so tough to save urban Monkeypod trees?”
