Save Our Banyan Tree

This petition had 1,646 supporters

This majestic, mature Banyan tree – is perhaps the last and oldest one left in the heart of our BYU Hawaii campus.
Old trees like this one help to create a sense of permanence and identity to the place we live, work and learn. It takes decades and
in some cases, more than hundreds of years for these trees to mature gracefully in a landscape. In itself it is an important green
heritage landmark of our university—our tree is at least as old as the campus itself—so 62+ years old. This tree is resilient, well
rooted, provides shade, coolness, shelter, beauty, habitat, and memories. Now our Banyan tree is at risk of being removed (cut
down) or dying due to plans to build a new cafeteria. In view of this, we, concerned members of our University/Community
Ohana seek to promote designs for the cafeteria that include, safeguard and conserve this special old tree of ours as a central
feature of our beautiful campus. 


Please support us and comment on why you want to help us save the banyan tree.
