Banyan Tree Square information
A tree has stature when throngs of citizens gather each year to celebrate its birthday! Marking the center of Lahaina, this awesome banyan tree sprawls across the entire square and ranks as the largest banyan tree in the US. Planted as a seedling on April 24, 1873 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of missionaries in Lahaina, the tree has become a virtual forest unto itself, with 16 major trunks and scores of horizontal branches reaching across the better part of an acre. Tarzan and the Swiss Family Robinson would feel right at home among its aerial roots and sturdy branches. On weekends artists and craftsmen set up booths beneath it.
