Is this raw land?
Yes. This is a Native Ohia Forest. Under the trees is lush, thick Uluhe Fern growing on lava rock. Some parcels have pre-existing openings to the Sun while others are more dense. Once you’re ready we can can help you create a space in the forest that matches your needs for your privacy and access in your new native forest environment. This requires proper planning to meet your preservation and privacy goals. But the end result allows for easy connection or reconnection with nature.

What about the volcano?
We are in upper Puna about 10 miles from Volcano National Park. The active lava flow in lower Puna was about 15 miles away. Prevailing trade winds blow the clouds away from our upper Puna and towards the South end of the island. Between the start of the May 3rd eruption and the time of this writing we experienced two major earthquakes with many smaller earthquakes. Most of the smaller earthquakes go unnoticed. The volcano has since stopped flowing from its source in the National Park. For the first time in a few decades no lava is flowing on Hawaii Island. Skies are clear.
