There has been a few mentions of living tikis on this board, here are some pictures of some living tikis in Carlsbad. I believe the carver is a guy named Tiki Tom.






The above pictures were taken at the Ocean Palms Hotel in Carlsbad. These Tikis are about 7-10 months old


These Tikis are at the Jet Ski Harbour in Carlsbad, they are over 3-4 years old.
Mahalo,
Al

When I visited Wayne Coombs before HUkilau last year, he was talking about the tikis carved at the dealership story and how it does not kill a tree to carve it. He said he could take us to trees that were living that had been carved years ago. Wayne's been doing it a while.

It is almost like tribal scarring, but for trees...I imagine the tree does not enjoy the experience, but as the latter photos demonstrate, the trees heal and bark over, eventually...they can be trained to heal and bark, I guess you could say...

You know, it's the strangest thing....the strangest, strangest thing...I have looked at all of those photos, and in some of them, there appear to be tears flowing out of the eyes...tree-sap tears...are the trees trying to tell us something?

They look great, what I don't get is why aren't the tress dieing? In Australia they use to ringbark trees to kill them... they probably still use this method today.

Maybe the Palm is different???

If you look at the old trees in the pictures above the bark is still on them, but not on the new ones. Trees transfer water & nutrients through the xylem, the tissue just below the bark, and they'll die if it's cut all the way around. If there isn't a strip of bark running up ther back of the trees where we can't see it they should die, and where the bark's been removed the tree will be susceptable to bug & fungal infections.

But on the other hand, palm trees aren't trees at all but giant grass stalks. The xylem of grass isn't under it's bark but runs through it's center, so if the palm tree doesn't succumb to disease or infestation it might survive being debarked. Are there any horticulturalists or arborists on TC who might know the answer to this?

There were two. One was San Diego's own "Tiki Dan". I haven't seen him in over a year. I've been looking for him. I hear he's a "wanted" man for a past TO transgressions.... If you see him at Oasis, turn him in to the authorities!


Here he is getting kicked out of Tiki Oasis a few years ago

I think that's the year someone saw him steal some décor off of a room balcony, and walk over to the vending area and sell it to someone else right off. He set up his unpaid for vending area on the sidewalk in front of the café as well.

So it's Tikiyaki Orchestra's debut show, and Tiki Dan lies his way into the event, sets up his unauthorized vending booth stage right, and then starts "working" on his tikis as the band takes the stage...

He's also been banned for life from every tiki store in the county at least 3-4 times for stealing stuff.

If you see him, run!


The other one was the SD county tiki carver knucklehead: "Tiki Daddy" from Oceanside. He got kicked out at another bash for being drunk and maybe starting a fight? He's the one who made the local news a few years ago for carving on live trees on city property.

Buzzy Out!
