LAST UPDATED: 01:47 a.m. HST, Nov 20, 2013

A large 80-year-old earpod tree will be removed from the grounds of the Department of Agriculture near Keeaumoku and South King streets starting Wednesday.

The tree has extensive internal decay and poses a potential hazard to the public, the Department of Agriculture reported.

The process will take about a week and will cause lane closures from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the area around Keeaumoku, South King and Young streets beginning Wednesday through Nov. 26.

Those trees have been an emblem of our history. They probably planted during Queen Emma's time. But then who cares, copperwire9. More cars and more "care less" people. They have no history here so why should a tree matter. We played forever under those trees. They were always a signal of a favorite person who worked in that building. One more of the family of trees destined for fill.
