The 3rd edition of the Maui County Planting Plan is now available online with a comprehensive guide on how to choose and care for trees and other plants.

The 2016 edition was produced by nationally-recognized arborist Ernest Rezents.

The 243-page plan defines which trees, turf, ground covers and other plantings will thrive in specific areas of Maui, encourages the use of native plants and identifies and discourages the use of invasive species.

The guide also includes information on the Arborist Committee, and describes the  Maui County Exceptional Tree program, which identifies and helps protect trees deemed exceptional due to type, size, condition and other considerations.

The Maui County Planting Plan can be viewed online.
