The uplands of the islands are important ecosystems. The forested lands and the higher alpine areas control the waters that give life in the lower elevations. We honor these uplands with our plant and land designs, bringing forth recognition to their hierarchy in our culture. The koa tree is significant in both protecting the forest and providing for canoes and ritual. In harmony, koa and the puʻu of the kuahiwi nui, protect and provide. Ola nā kuahiwi nui! Plant a koa tree today!
