COCONUT TREE TRIMMING – 3 TIMES A YEAR

Coconut palms require trimming one to two times per year to remove dead and drooping fronds, resulting in a cleaner appearance and healthier growth.  At The Shores of Maui locals on the Valley Isle who are skilled at this trade, climb the narrow trunks of these trees and trim the growth.  It is a safety precaution as well to ensure the branches don’t break and fall off.  They can land with quite a “whack”.  Take a look at these photos – on December 1st.  Quite the art I would say

They start at the top

And work their way down

And work their way down

And down - fascinating to see
