Lahaina’s Banyan Tree


The banyan tree in Lahaina, Maui, was planted on April 24, 1873 to mark the 50th anniversary of the arrival of the first American Protestant mission. This tree is the largest banyan tree in the United States…it is HUGE.

Here is a drawing of my son playing beneath its roots, which by the way are aerial roots and sprout from the branches, extending to the ground forming new trunks! Amazing to see.
