Ho’oulu ka ‘Ulu – Taking Care of the ‘Ulu

'Ulu breadfruit Amy Greenwell Garden Hawaii

Our towering breadfruit trees had become a dangerous liability problem that had to be addressed in early 2020. Mahalo to Friends members Gene and Meredith Clapp for kindly offering to fund our Canopy Care tree trimming and chipping work as part of their generous donation in celebration of the Garden’s new ownership. Not surprisingly, our ‘ulu have responded to the much-needed haircut by sending forth new shoots galore.
