Haleakalā National Park will be conducting hazardous tree and limb removal throughout Hosmer Grove beginning June 6, 2011.

Closure of these areas begins at noon on Monday, June 6th and continues through Wednesday, June 8th or until work is complete. Entry into these areas will be prohibited during the closure to ensure public safety. Removal of hazardous trees and limbs will continue until June 18th in various locations within Hosmer Grove. Portions of the trail may be closed temporarily during this period of work.Visitors to the area may expect commercial vehicles, equipment and noise from chainsaws and other equipment from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. each day of work.
