The extreme rarity of many endemic plants in Hawaii can be attributed to the historic alteration of this natural habitat and competition from invasive weeds and animals. To protect the remaining ecosystems, conservation plans have been implemented to establish new populations, and conserve genetic material eg, in seed banks and botanical gardens.

When you walk into the enclosure, you are greeted by the beautiful wiliwili tree (erythrina sandwicensis) that has an estimated age of 300 to 400 years old. This endemic tree is part of Hawaiian culture and legends. Learn about its history and where it can be found in the Hawaiian islands. Their wood is extremely light and was eg, used to build surfboards and outriggers.

The uhiuhi tree (caesalpinia kavaiensis) is listed as endangered and all of the trees in the reserve are closely monitored and seedlings are grown to improve the trees’ chances. You may be one of the lucky few to see these trees in blossom. Their wood is very dense and heavy and was used for many purposes in ancient Hawaii.

Make this visit the one where you leave the beautiful island of Hawaii knowing that you contributed to protect the natural landscapes of the island. Your legacy tree could see into the future hundreds of years. We are excited to take you to a place that very few have the privilege to see.
