BLAME the OUTDOOR CIRCLE !!!!!!! and The SIERRA CLUB !!!!! when Mufi was mayor, crews started to cut back trees along the Pali , tree-huggers with the OUTDOOR CIRCLE and SIERRA CLUB put a stop to it. about two months later a tree fell onto a vehicle with two females heading to work just outside the pali tunnel. you will NEVER see any of these tree-huggers assisting with clean up, with ANY type of help for those that are INJURED because of falling trees and such. it probably would be to traumatic for them seeing a tree laying across the roadway!!

I see the neo-con nut cases are out in force today....Its the vegetation that is holds the soil in place. Cut the trees too much and you'll have even more landslides. We're having a wetter than average winter and the soil all over thie island is saturated. Result is landslides and tree falls. Get over yourselves.

Hey DINGLE-BERRY....it's NOT about cutting the vegetation YOU E. D. OTT! .it's about removing the TREES that are TALL enough and CLOSE enough to the roadway that if it should ever FALL that it would not FALL onto someone walking, driving or riding in a vehicle that could cause severe injury or even YOUR DEATH!!!! it's about PREVENTING the possibility of that happening but then again some people are about REACTION than ACTION.

hey out of CONTROL, the trees falling on the Pali and Likelike were due to the HIGH-WINDS, NOT the ground being saturated! unless ground saturation means that a very large tree would break at its stump 4 -5 feet from the ground due to ground saturation, as you stated.
