At the site of a 25K+ acre brushfire one of the tree stumps along the fire line reveals a tough past. From the looks of the rings exposed by fire crews cutting it down it appears that this wasn’t the first time the tree had seen harsh times in the Waikoloa area. Life must have been tough growing in high winds, little water and past fires. It finally succumbed to a chain saw.
