Our efforts involved surveying, designing, spearheading installation, performing maintenance. Street Tree Plant Materials came from C&C list of acceptable street trees and native plants from their Waipio nursery. Sustainability: LKOC contracted with Board of Water Supply to pay on-going water bills on several projects.
LKOC ~ PLANTING FOR THE FUTURE ~ STREET TREES IN KAILUA
LKOC has been active in spearheading landscape beautification and tree planting projects in Kailua since it’s founding in 1948. What you see is what we protect! What you see is what we planted!
Below are renderings of several of our Planting Projects, showing how different our Kailua streets would look today, if LKOC had not been involved in planting for the future.
Top photo in each split view is how plantings spearheaded by LKOC actually look today. Bottom photo has those plantings digitally removed, for contrast.
