KIHEI, MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) - A large tree fell over at Kilohana Park in Kihei, Maui, forcing officials to close the park until further notice.

Workers found the 40-foot tree Friday morning, leaning on a chain-link fence. The fence is damaged, and the park has been closed, Maui county officials say.

Arborists are inspecting the tree to see why it fell over as crews work to remove the debris.
