Good Bye Old Friend
Department of Public Works staff clean up the debris of a large flame tree that fell on the road due to a fungal disease Thursday afternoon in front of Paseo De Marianas Beach Road in Garapan. (Jacqueline Hernandez)
It always saddens me to see one of our beautiful flame trees (or any tree for that matter) fall prey to either man or disease. A friend of mine, Ed Pocaigue, a staff of Speaker Mark Forbes' office in Guam, sent me an e-mail this morning and expressed his appreciation for the work that Beautify CNMI! is doing to replace our flame trees. Thank you for noticing, Ed! I shall pass along your kind words to the Beautify CNMI! family!
