The Ohia

The ‘Ōhi’a tree holds significant meaning for the native Hawaiians. One legend explains that Pele (the goddess of the volcano) fell in love with a warrior named ‘Ōhi’a. However, the warrior was already promised to Lehua. Pele was angry with the rejection so she turned Ohia into a twisted tree. Lehua, his lover was heartbroken and when the gods heard of Pele's anger, they decided that Lehua would adorn the tree and so they turned her into a flower. The two lovers are joined together as the ‘Ōhi’a Lehua tree.

Beyond the legend, the ‘Ōhi’a tree is very significant in the Hawaiian eco-system, and the delicate tree has been threatened by ROD. The Lyons Estate is currently working with DLNR and other agencies to protect and preserve the trees on property.
