ALA MOANA REGIONAL PARK TREE REMOVAL
(Thurs., June 28, 2012)—A Department of Parks and Recreation Urban Forestry Division crew will remove seven Chinese Banyan trees from Ala Moana Regional Park tomorrow (Friday). The work is expected to be completed by Tuesday, July 2. The trees are located along the main roadway, three near McCoy Pavilion, three near the Indian Banyan mound, and one near the Aina Moana parking lot entrance. None of the trees is on the Exceptional Tree register.
All of the trees scheduled for removal have several structural defects, and their extraction is necessary for public safety. Replacement of the trees will be included in a larger planting project planned for the park in the near future.
