The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Hawaii Wildfires Recovery Mission team, along with federal, state, and local partners, are finishing out Phase II of debris removal in Kula, Maui. The removal process began once hazardous tree assessments were completed by registered foresters and arborists in the impacted areas. Arborists tie ropes around a healthy tree which the use to pull the snag upright into a safe position. Only trees that pose an imminent threat of falling into the public right of way or present a hazard to workers or the work zone will be removed. (USACE Photo by Brigida I. Sanchez)
