Lava Tree State Park no longer exists.
Lava Tree State Park is located in the Nanawale Forest Reserve. It is a graphic depiction of the long-term effects of lava. A fast moving flow of hot lava hit this patch of wet ‘O’hia trees hundreds of years ago. The lava left behind vertical, hollow, lava tubes where each tree once stood. At the entrance of the park you will see some of the best lava-tree specimens. If you prefer, there are also trail around the park. During the eruption in 1790, there was a gash created in the earth’s crust. You will see how fragile and unstable this island is when you see the uneven ground throughout the park. Monkey pod trees, lush tropical foliage and moss cover the structures.
