What is Koa?
In the Hawaiian language Koa means brave, bold, fearless and warrior.
Koa or Acacia Koa is a large tree, typically attaining a height of 15-25m (49-82ft) and a spread of 6-12m (20-39ft). In deep volcanic ash, a koa tree can reach a height of 30m (98ft), a circumference of 6m (20ft), and a spread of 38m (125ft). It is one of the fastest-growing Hawaiian trees, capable of reaching 6-9m (20-30ft) in five years on a good site.
