Lava Tree State Monument to reopen on Big Island


HILO >> Lava Tree State Monument on Hawaii’s Big Island will reopen on a limited basis on Monday.

The Department of Land and Natural Resources says the park had been closed after numerous albizia trees were blown down during a tropical storm in August.

The public will be able to visit most of the viewable lava tree molds, the main pavilion and the information kiosk.

The parking lot, comfort station and front portion of the loop trail also will be open.

But the back portion of the park will remain closed.

It cost more than $88,000 to repair and clean up the park.
