Hawaii Pines

They look like Christmas trees in June. Lining the expansive and exclusive Dole-Kalsangi golf course in Polomolok, South Cotabato are Hawaii Pines, so-called because they came all the way from Hawaii, USA some 40 years ago. Boy Scouts from Hawaii gathered and sent the pine seedlings way back in exchange for donations from DOLE-Philippines. Photo by JULES BENITEZ
