Jake Shimabukuro plants a Flame Tree

Ken Kramer and Angelo VillagomezI get to dig a lot of holes. I'm not talking in the figurative sense, I literally dig a lot of holes...for trees.

My latest hole (Ken was my co-digger) is the home of a new Flame Tree sapling. It was planted to commemorate the two year anniversary of Beautify CNMI! and was planted by celebrity tree planter/ukulele player Jake Shimabukuro.

Jake Shimakuro and his saipan flame treeLike all things Beautify CNMI!, we had a lot of help from many different people planting this tree. Brad Doerr, volunteer and tree grower extraordinaire, gave us a tree and fertilizer, Ken Kramer brought shovels from the RC&D, the World Resort GM and staff provided water and other coordination, and an army of people took photos.

Here we are with the anniversary concert planning committee:
