There’s More to Lana’i, Like the Island’s Magical Trees


As soon as the shuttle turned onto the main road leaving the airport I realized that I would be seeing much more than palm trees on the island of Lana’i in Hawa’ai.

Pine trees lined the road leading into Lana’i City and I new I was in for a topiary treat over the next 10 days!  Lana’i has a tree focused history – and thanks to the Norfolk Pine tree – the dry island found a way to trap moisture. Needless to say – I took a lot of photos of trees while on Lana’i – here are some of my favorites.
