A building boom is gearing up in my neighborhood in Hawaiian Paradise Park. Property owners are clearing acre lots for houses. I see that while the state is replanting native forests, property owners are bull dozing native rain forests on their lots. It’s counter-productive because once the land is denuded, the owners have to pay thousands of dollars to haul in gravel, more gravel, soil, and fertilizer. Then the owners have to pay thousands, if not tens of thousands to plant trees, shrubs, etc. To see the revered ohia, palms and bamboo orchids plowed under is sad. Isn’t there some way we can urge new builders to leave the native forest by clearing only a driveway and house plot plus some land for a garden? Can our government, community activists, nurseries, farmers, Realtors and builders encourage owners to leave the native forest alone? I can’t stand seeing bare land in one-acre plots. And more to come! Thanks for your comments. — K.B., Hawaiian Paradise Park
