If it’s anything the Christmas holiday season teaches us, its patience! Particularly if you are an Xmas tree grower here in Hawaii.
Ask Aaron O-Brien, whose father started growing trees in Whitmore Village on Oahu’s North Shore. It's been trial and error with no one to lead the way. The Helemano Tree farm opens the day after Thanksgiving. We stopped by there this weekend as workers were busy sizing and tagging the locally grown tree.
