Aloha ʻĀina Gift (Kou)

Aloha ʻĀina Gift (Kou)


Kou is a native, indigenous tree that can grow up to 25-30 ft., and its orange flowers make beautiful lei.

Historically, kou wood was fashioned into calabashes, dishes, and utensils. Kou wood containers were prized because they didn't leave a resinous flavor on the food. Aged kou leaves can be used to create a reddish-brown kapa dye, which fishermen also used to dye their fishing lines. Kou is drought, wind, and salt tolerant.


Give the gift of aloha to the land that gives us so much!

When you sponsor a tree, you will receive a digital certificate with the GPS location of your tree, along with an open invitation to visit it.


This gift will support our mission to protect and preserve Hawaiʻi's fragile ecosystems. 

To show our appreciation, we will plant one native Hawaiian plant for each tree gifted in Pia Valley, Oʻahu, a 330-acre nature preserve we have the honor and kuleana of stewarding.
