The annual cleanup of the “Tree Tunnel” at Maluhia Road has become a prelude to the annual Koloa Plantation Days celebration, which is set to begin next weekend and run for over a week with a wide range of activities on the South Shore.
The roadside cleanup attracted community volunteers as well as volunteer brigades from the South Shore resorts.
The Hyatt Regnecy Kauai and the Sheraton Poipu were among the visitor industry businesses who contributed refreshments for the workers.
The “Tree Tunnel” connects an area known as Knudsen’s Gap with the mauka end of Koloa. The tunnel was originally a civic project using trees left over from a planting at the Kukuiolono estate at the top of Kalaheo town. The estate was owned and created by Walter McBryde, the son of Judge Duncan McBryde, the namesake for the McBryde Sugar plantation.
