Clearing / Grubbing
  • Clearing is defined as removing and disposing of all unwanted surface material, such as trees, brush, grass, weeds, downed trees, and other material. Grubbing is defined as removing and disposing of all unwanted vegetative matter from underground, such as stumps, roots, buried logs, and other debris. Grubbing may require a permit, check County of Kauai, Public Works, Engineering for details and application. Whether your needs are for a residential lot or a brand new subdivision, KNL can get your property ready for landscape and development.

  • There are many tree trimmers on our island and most do excellent work. KNL employs certified Arborists and Tree Risk Assessment providers that work closely with tree trimmers. The value of the certified arborist lies in the level of knowledge on how the tree’s life system works and what is best for the health of the tree; some people think of arborists as tree surgeons and trimmers as general practitioners. KNL’s arborists can inspect your trees branches for hazards or decay, recommend treatment while they heal, or the best way to remove damage to save your tree.

Green Waste Recycling
  • Green waste collected through the County's green waste recycling program is shredded into a mulch product that can be used as a ground cover or as a carbon base for composting. Kauai Nursery & Landscaping is a permitted green waste composting facility and accepts Green Waste from commercial haulers, contractors, businesses, and general public for a reasonable fee.

    • Proper Preparation: Only source separated Green Waste is accepted, all other non-plant materials, not listed as acceptable material, is contamination. To prevent contamination, Green Waste must be separated from all other types of waste material prior to delivery. Larger plant material (i.e. logs and stumps 8 inches or more in diameter) should be cut to lengths of 8 feet or less. When delivering Green Waste be sure to remove all ropes, canvas, film, plastic (bags), and tie-downs used to secure Green Waste.
