Free tree trimming service

Please note: the tree trimming service is dormant during the Fall and Winter. In keeping with the Society's aims of promoting the understanding and research of plumeria, we have established an educational outreach fund to support academic scientific research on plumerias as well as to educate prospective landscapers and designers about the beauty and ease of plumeria in the landscape.
