Progress on Palm Stumps

Spotted on west coast last week - a large team of guys, tractors, trailers, chainsaws etc clearing dead palm stumps. Couldn't be sure but they looked like Administration employees.

The bush behind them was again beautiful and showed many young and alternative palm species flourishing.

1. Re: Progress on Palm Stumps

Deon Daniels (the developer of the Condos at Nelson Springs) and a group of concerned citizens from Cotton Ground are working with local officials to privately fund an effort to clear the land just north of Phase 2 of the development (near the "fishing shacks") and around Nelso's Springs (the actual pond not the condos) to create a beachside park that will be available for public use. The land clearing is essentially complete and new plantings and lawn areas should be in shortly.

There were also some men clearing out stumps in the area just north of Coconut Grove Restaurant last week - don't who they were or who hired them - it looked like they were clearing a path from the road to the beach. This section of private land has hundreds upon hundreds of dead plams and what has been done so far is only a drop in the proverbial bucket but at least it's a start - there's still a very long way to go.

When I arrived on island I was surprised to learn that the government has actually been working hard on clearing the dead palms. The projects they have been working on just haven't been along the island main road of late.....
