The official tree for the State of Hawaii because of its importance to the ancient Hawaiians for light, fuel, medicine and dye.  The leaves appear silvery in the distance and have long petioles that allow them to sway and glitter in the slightest breeze.  The fleshy fruit contains 1 or 2 very oily hard -shelled seeds which were traditionally strung together on the midrib of coconut leaves to be lit and used as candles.  ( It is also known as the Candlenut tree.)

Aleurites moluccana.
