Trees stay green
Originally from Australia's Norfolk Island, the Norfolk pine came to Hawaii in the 19th Century. Norfolks can grow more than 150 feet tall! At Helemano Farms, we have thousands of Christmas trees from 5 to 20 feet tall. When cut, Norfolks stay green and gorgeous for more than a month and they do not turn brown like Christmas trees shipped to Hawaii. We do not have Norfolks in pots. We cut our Norfolks so a new tree grows from each stump! Real Christmas trees are better for our environment than artificial trees.
No uninvited pests
Since our trees grow locally, they do not unleash foreign invasive species into our island environment. This is a real risk with imported Christmas trees. Helemano Farms does not ship trees.
Leyland Cypress trees
Helemano Farms also grows Leyland Cypress Christmas trees. Leylands are thick, evergreen and have a light pine scent. The trees are a hybrid of the Monterey cypress and Alaskan cedar. Six seedlings were discovered in 1888 in South Wales of Britain.
