Almost sixty years ago two golden trees were planted in a Maui park by people from Indiana to express friendship with Maui’s people. In an expression completely foreign to the concepts of pono and aloha, the County Parks Department plans to cut them down because of seasonal falling leaves! The County arborists opposes this action. The County Arborists Committee voted unanimously against this action. While the location is in Kamali’i Park is in Kahului, even the KCA Street Tree Committee opposes this action to support an urban forest, calling for more trees, not fewer.
