At Friends of Malaekahana the person who leased the land from the state is cutting the trees and bushes down at an alarming rate. Vegetation that I have seen for over 20 years has been hacked off to make roads, widen roads, make flat dirt areas for more rental structures. As you go through the tree tunnel to the right a huge area where there once was forest is gone for no apparent reason. These trees and bushes are not coming back. You go to a park to see trees and bushes. He is ruining the park's natural beauty. That park used to have so much vegetation. When I look at the other state parks I see the vegetation looks very similar as it did 20 years ago. This is sad and the State needs to step in and stop it before more is lost!
