"The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago. The second best time is now."
~Ancient Chinese Proverb
Located on the slopes of Mauna Kea, this historic site was once the personal koa forest of King Kamehameha the Great- 1st King of Hawai‘i. Sadly, this land was cleared nearly a century ago to make room for farming and ranching. Fortunately, some of the old growth koa trees still reside on the property. These rare trees grow nowhere else on Earth and are being utilized as a seed source for all Legacy Trees to bring the forest back to its former glory. Be a part of Hawai‘i’s history and create the memory of a lifetime.
"We do not inherit the land from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children,"
~ American Indian proverb
