Sorry - I do not believe this is a Hale Koa tree, this is a Banyon tree as evidenced by the roots hanging down. The Hale Koa is more like a tall bush.

You're right. it IS a Banyon tree.

However, Cynthia is right... This is THE TREE AT THE HALE KOA (the military resort in Waikiki)

The tree's name is Gus.


Aloha! Becky

LOL I'm sorry, I didn't realize that I had caused confusion with my title. As previously posted, yes, this is a babyan tree, but the tree is located at the Hale Koa hotel on Waikiki beach. That's why I titled the photo Hale Koa tree. It's lovely at night. The roots are wrapped with trinkling white lights and the tree is all lit up.

Sorry, I meant to say, yes this is a BANYAN tree. Apparently I cannot type today.
