ULUPALAKUA- On Seabury Hall’s annual Community Work Day, Friday February 19th, 39 high school seniors spread wood chip mulch around the DT Fleming Arboretum’s native trees to control weeds, provide nutrition and help retain moisture. The volunteers divided into 6 teams, each with a Team Leader, to mulch 6 blocks of trees and included an impromptu trail repair for project access.
“I could not have been more impressed by the quality of these young adults, the team work…
taking on the job with enthusiasm, doing their best, then working together to do even better.” stated Martha Vockrodt- Arboretum project manager.

“Compliments go out to the teams and the 5 team leaders: Lauralei Singsank, Jonah Adelman, John Chen, Scout Weymouth and Cody Wendt.”

After a morning of work and picnic lunch, volunteers were treated with a guided hike visiting some of Maui’s rarest trees. Team leader Lauralei Singsank (left in black t-shirt) described the Arboretum as “an incredible haven for both native plants and Hawaii’s history”.
