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!

scaling the tree with a machete to trim palm fronds and coconuts
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?

untrimmed palm tree... it's just not as beautiful as it could be.
