yes, probably need to update that info - I assume the ones you found were clustered around the port village?

Just to confirm.

While Easter Island was at one time deforested, and it remains mainly treeless, trees have been coming back.

There's a healthy -- and wonderful smelling -- large, (managed?) grove of Eucalyptus trees planted in the 1970s in roughly the center of the island. There are also little patches of thinner Aito trees and shrubberies around the island, probably most dense along the edges of the lake in the drano kau crater, and growing up toward the size.

Oh, yes, there are also a few dozen large palm trees standing in rows at Anekana Beach, the swimming area on the north side of the island.

and it was the large palms that originally covered the island, no?
