A colossal, beloved 150-year-old banyan tree at the centre of Lahaina town that was scorched when deadly wildfires ravaged Maui, Hawaii, last month is showing viridescent signs of new growth.

If you have been there and seen the grand tree up close, you understand why so many people celebrate this good news.

Absolutely. Lahaina was a wonderful place to visit and just be when my wife and I first visited 20 years ago. I can only imagine what it was like when my mother and father were there. Maui was already highly touristized by 2000 and has only become more so since then. That tree in the square was just a beautiful site though and the town quaint. I think we spent an hour just taking in the tree with all the birds and such in it at the time.

With all the people who have peed there, it's gotta be well nourished.

I was there in 1986 and it was already a strip mall of t-shirt shops. I do remember the tree though. As much as I remember anything after I got some stuff from the other shop under the boardwalk.
