Yesterday we spent some time at the pool at our Maui Kamaole condo - there was a little side-show going on, coconut tree trimming! My son was enthralled. What a perfect job for someone who loves climbing trees, being paid to climb!

|if you look closely - three of these trees have guys in them!|
Why are these palm trees being trimmed? Two reasons - the first being safety. We really don't want a full-sized coconut falling and hurting someone! The second... have you ever seen an untrimmed palm tree?
