On 3/28/15, Larry Conklin came with his big crane for the second time to help Mālama Hulē‘ia with eradication of red mangrove along the banks of the Pū‘ali Stream. This time he came with Jim Campbell’s crews of cutters and shredders. Here are some pictures of what they started with, how they had to operate in the dense mangrove jungle, and the end result of one day’s work. They will return soon to follow up on what they had to leave behind.
Mahalo to Buddy Keala for his coordination of all the work.
