It has become our family tradition to go to Helemano Farms and pick our locally grown Christmas tree. We’ll be choosing a tree for Ka Hana Pono Daycare this weekend! 🙂
Prior to the 1960’s the Norfolk Island Pine tree was the only option for Hawaii residents which makes it Hawaii’s only authentic Christmas tree 🙂
Benefits of getting a locally grown, freshly cut tree:
These trees will stay green for over a month.
Because these trees are grown in Hawaii, there is no risk of unleashing foreign invasive species into our island environment.
The needles of these norfolk pines do not fall off & make a mess 🙂
The way Helemano Farms cuts their trees allows each stump to grow into a new Christmas tree.
Here’s a photo of our tree from last year:
Helemano Farms is located in Wahiawa on Whitmore Avenue and their phone number is 622-4287.
