Battle Scarred Warrior
Koa in Hawaiian means "soldier" or "warrior". These tall, majestic trees were the trees that Hawaiians used to make canoe. Koa is one of the most ecologically important native trees of the Hawaiian forest. This Koa, despite some apparent battle wounds over the years, was standing tall along the Wa`ahila Ridge hiking trail.
