The official state tree of Hawaii is the kukui nut tree or kukui tree. It’s known elsewhere as the candlenut tree. Historians consider the kukui nut tree in Hawaii as one of a number of “canoe plants.” This because the Polynesians brought such seeds with them in canoes when they first came to Hawaii. The kukui nut represents protection, peace, enlightenment and light. Kamapua’a, the Hawaiian demi-god of fertility, would be able to take the form of the kukui nut tree before changing back into a demi-god.
