KAILUA — The city has temporarily suspended the replacement of 17 poinciana trees near Kailua District Park after a flurry of protests from residents this week.
Residents are calling for proof of the problems and say that if the trees need to be replaced, royal poinciana should be used. The city says the trees are damaged and need to be replaced, and will continue the project once residents have been fully informed."
