How to grow your own Christmas trees in Haiku Maui

line of pine trees in Haiku Maui HI 96708

We are lucky to have a mini forest of Norfolk Island Pines on our Haiku property, and this year I noticed the sprouts coming up after a wet spell in late summer.  My sister in law planted these beautiful trees about 20 years ago and now they are huge mature trees ready to reproduce.

1.  dig up some sprouts that volunteer under the trees in the wet season

2.  plant them in small pots with a rich potting mix

3.  transplant to larger pots each year or as needed, fertilize from time to time

4.  3 years later... a nice small Christmas tree, ready for plantig, sale or for decorating.

Hi Georgina--I absolutely love those Norfolk Island Pines.  I especially love them up around Kapalua.  Hope you have a very happy holiday season.

That is the ultimate expression of being Green Gerogina. I was always taken with the Cook Pines up Kapalua way. Different species correct?

Hey thanks for all the comments.  These Norfolk Island Pines are very similar to Cook Island PInes.  Norfolks are more conical shaped like a traditional Xmas tree, and the branches point more upwards.   We use them every year even though they don't have that nice piney smell, they still look great and we have plenty of them!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!
