Tree removal scheduled to begin Friday at Kapi‘olani Regional Park

Waikīkī -- Work to remove a large kiawe tree at Kapi‘olani Regional Park near the Louise Dillingham Memorial Fountain is scheduled to begin Friday, November 3.

The tree removal was deemed necessary following an inspection by arborists with the Department of Parks and Recreation's Division of Urban Forestry. Although this tree is popular with the public and is featured in many vacation and wedding photos, several large cracks were discovered along the trunk and major branches, and an immediate removal was deemed necessary to ensure public safety.

Tree removal work will take place during normal business hours, 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and is expected to last through next Tuesday, November 7. No weekend work is anticipated and the tree removal is not expected to impact traffic as crews will work from within the park.

A replacement shower tree will be planted at Kapi‘olani Regional Park in honor of Arbor Day. This event will take place on Saturday, November 18, and will be done in cooperation with Scenic Hawai‘i and the Kapi‘olani Park Preservation Society.
