If you have ever traveled to or lived on the beautiful islands of Hawaii, you have likely see the multicolored miracles of nature known as the Rainbow Eucalyptus Tree. These impressive trees, which rise high into the Hawaiin sky and amaze residents and tourists to this day, the Rainbow Eucalyptus are a sacred and protected natural resource of the Hawaiian state.
So what exactly are these amazing natural wonders? The Rainbow Eucalyptus Tree can live for many decades – anywhere from fifty to one hundred years! This long life has allowed these incredible trees to witness a variety of Hawaiin history – from the early moments of civilizations to today’s modern, technical revolutions. The Rainbow Eucalyptus Tree is famous for producing delicate white flowers that are beautiful to behold, as well as multicolored bark that wows visitors who lay eyes on these amazing flora.
The “magic” behind the Rainbow Eucalyptus’s multicolored bark is actually a miracle of nature. As layers of bark are shed, raw green layers appear, and begin their color journey across the spectrum. As different layers emerge, the rainbow of colors appear across the tree, painting the Hawaiian countryside with magical rainbow colors that astound many today.
The History Of The Rainbow Eucalyptus
While the colorful bark and large leafs of the Rainbow Eucalyptus may seem uniquely Hawaiin, the tree itself is anything but. The first rainbow eucalyptus was introduced to the natural environment as part of a statewide reforestation movement started by the Hawaiin government in 1929.
Originally hailing from the beautiful island of the Philippines, Rainbow Eucalyptus trees were brought to Hawaii and planted on Oahu at the iconic Wahiawa Botanical Garden. This effort was put in place to help prevent damaging soil erosion that was being experienced by the area.
From that day, the Rainbow Eucalyptus tree flourished on the Hawaiin countryside, and has been introduced to nearly every Hawaiin island since then. Residents and tourists both enjoy the tall and majestic trees as they provide shade for many of Hawaii’s regions – including Maui’s Hana Highway, Kauai, and Oahu. As decorative and revered trees, the Rainbow Eucalyptus has become a favorite of tourists and natie Hawaiian residents alike. If you live and work in Hawaii, it is likely that there is a friendly Rainbow Eucalyptus sitting near you right now!
