The 5 acre Lundkvist Palm Garden is located next to one of the remaining areas of lowland Hawaiian rainforest. For the purpose of starting up the palm nursery, the adjacent land was leased as of May 2005, and a few areas were cleared. Most of the forest has been left intact, with a vegetation of primarily tall, native, Metrosideros polymorpha ("ohi'a") trees and numerous Hawaiian Tree Ferns, as well as several other native Hawaiian trees. The photos below will show some of the areas that have been cleared, as well as some of the foot-trails that have been built through the forest.
