Tree trimming needed for public safety

What will it take for Maui County to realize that tree trimming needs to be done — a natural disaster?

The keawe tree at Kamaole III in South Kihei that hangs over South Kihei Road lower than 10 feet is ridiculous! Fortunately, Hurricane Lane didn’t impact us with the anticipated winds! If it had, that tree would now be blocking South Kihei Road for who knows how long, creating serious traffic problems!

Regulation height is 12 feet or higher for any main public road, just measure the stop lights. Please trim the tree ASAP! With all the rain we just got, it’s only going to grow and hang lower.
