Aloha Friday Photo: Beautiful Hala Tree

One of the most beautiful and interesting looking trees I’ve ever seen is located here in Hawaii. It’s called the hala tree.

Hala Tree Hale Koa

The most distinct characteristic about this tree is its trunk; it appears spiny, begins to fork out about 4-8 meters above the ground, and has prop roots that support the tree and adhere it to the ground. It’s quite noticeable for those of us that aren’t that familiar with it.

This particular tree is located at the Hale Koa Hotel down in Waikiki. When my sister came to visit, she insisted I go stand near the base of the tree to show perspective on this tree’s grand appearance. Pretty impressive, right?
