Tree trimmer Adumin Andrade trims a palm tree Thursday morning along Airport Access Road in Kahului. He said he has been doing the job for more than 30 years. “I have a lot of passion about the trees. I love to see the beauty of the island, the beauty of the trees. That’s why we do what we do.” He said the spikeless tree-climbing equipment he uses is healthier for the trees than the old-fashioned way that dug holes in them. While Andrade was working for beautification, his tree trimming last week is beneficial for safety with Tropical Storm Olivia headed toward the islands.
