The north shore of Molokai is a veritable Hawaiian Garden of Eden overflowing with lush, tropical plants and flowers, waterfalls, tropical birds and hidden beaches. Two kinds of trees, the kiawe and ohia lehua. (Source) The kiawe tree, growing in the drier regions of Molokai, is so efficient at extracting moisture from soil that it can kill nearby plants
