Koa (Acacia Koa) is the second most plentiful tree in Hawaii, indigenous to the island of Hawaii. The wood was highly prized among the ancient Hawaiians who used it to build their canoes. Originally, the wood was made into items, which only Hawaiian Royalty was allowed to own. Since then, thousands of different items have been made from Koa wood. Currently the only place in the world the wood is being harvested is on the summits of the Big Island of Hawaii.
