A “Cook Pine” tree was taken from Makaunulau Community Park in Mililani.
And it can’t be just any old pine tree.
The city said, its arborists look for a tree with full and evenly dispersed branches, is at least 50-feet tall and in a location where it can be safely cut down.
The lighting of the tree will take place Saturday, Dec. 9th and will be part of a block party full of food, vendors and activities.
The holiday parade will also take place that night starting at 6 p.m., from Kapolei High School to Kamaaha street.
