Buy Christmas trees so you can be the first to fill your rubbish cans full the day after Christmas.

This is such a waste of money. No need tree, get a life! If you must have a tree and if you are really that brainwashed by the huge department stores then get an imitation one and use it forever.

Somehow this makes me think of people killing baby seals so they can make cute little baby seal dolls.

How about buying a small live tree and then planting it in a special spot after Christmas?

YUP!!! Just like what someone did at the windward side Pali Hwy rise after the old drive-in exit area...I think Norfolks will last in Hawaii climate better than the mainland trees with fragrance. Make it look Charlie Brownish...cool! Btw, as for the other poster, how TRUE!!!! You wait n see...some people in my community actually trash their tree (with TINSELS EVEN!!!) on CHRISTMAS DAY!!!!..HECK! I would leave mines up till the new years becuz the fragrance is so nice and sweet!!!

I told you so...Mufi's $7.6 Billion dollar rail requires extra taxation in the tune of over $4000 per year each...has drained the pocketbooks of us taxpayers and your ability to purchase Christmas items for your kids!

You can all thank that Samonan thug for robbing your parent's bank accounts in order to get kickbacks from his Rail cronies!

Thanks for point out that he's Samoan, because it's totally relevant to the point you had to make.

After Christmas, put the tree in your back yard and light it with a match. Got ahead. Try it. It just explodes into flames from the turpentine in the sap. Why do you think forest fires are so spectacular? These trees should be banned from being decorated with electical lights and wiring INSIDE a house. Artificial fire-proof trees are the way to go. Disassemble them after pau.

What recession in Hawaii? People have so much money that christmas trees are gone so early. This is an leading economic indicator.

We have artificial, because as much as I love the smell, we're allergic AND this is the 5th Christmas we've used them. I love that the lights are already on the trees, too. What a bonus. Sometimes for smell I buy a wreath from Costco, but this year we're too broke.

No, this shows that people in Hawaii are brain dead; they're willing to spend big money for trees which will be disposed of after a few weeks but not for education. And watch how much money will be wasted on fireworks.

fireworks aren't a waste --- the money goes for a good cause

Christmas trees when furloughs and layoffs are at an all-time high. Who cares if you don't have a Christmas tree? We should be thankful that we have good health, something to eat, and a roof over our heads. Think of all the people who do not have these basic things... Nothing wrong with local trees or artificial trees, too.
