Honolulu (AP) - The US musician Paul Simon (77) has planted a tree on the Hawaiian island of Maui and informed about the local forest dying.

"Sitting here with you and forming a community is a real privilege, and I can hardly explain it," Simon told a group of environmental activists, local newspaper "Star Advertiser" reported Monday. During the action on Friday, the singer also planted a rare tree in the Auwahi Forest Reserve.

The tree plantation is part of a reforestation on the second largest island of the Central Pacific located in the US state of Hawaii. The week before, the Simon & Garfunkel star ("Bridge Over Troubled Water") had given two charity concerts and donated the proceeds to the project.

The music led him to this place. "I hope to see you again soon," he said.
