More than 60,000 thriving tropical hardwood trees, all raised from
seed on the property, promise to one day be a replenishing source
of timber for established international markets.
Indigenous to Burma, India and Southeast Asia, teak is the predominant hardwood raised at Na
‘Āina Kai. These stately trees are grown on 123 acres, along with three mahoganies, zebra wood,
Indian rosewood, and 20 more hardwood species. Among them are several prized in the crafting of fine musical
instruments. Indian blackwood is a favorite for carving woodwinds.
