on one ever mentions these trees. for one, i am mesmerized by the regular trees. growing up in so cal, i love them . the smell, the button seeds, the slender , flowing trees...but on our last trip to hana, someone pointed out the PAINTED trees. i have the most beautiful pictures of the green , red, yellow and all, painted bark. these were some of the most beautiful living objects i have ever seen...enjoy, when on the road.
