Coconut Tree Trim Time



We have six tall mature coconut palm trees on our property, and every year at this time, we call in a Tongan tree trimmer to take down the coconuts. These coconuts are dangerous when they fall from the trees. Recently one coconut fell, and it ripped right through an umbrella and shattered the outdoor glass tabletop. Our Tongan trimmer was supposed to be here yesterday, but he didn't show up. Then it rained, and he can't climb the trees when they're slippery. So it goes on Maui as there is such a thing here called "Maui Time".

Oh, I should have such problems! The height looks somewhat dizzying.
