The Keanae Arboretum is located in a tropical forest setting near the Hana Highway on windward East Maui. It lies alongside the Piinaau Stream on leveled terraces built hundreds of years ago by Hawaiians for taro cultivation. The arboretum is accessed via a 1/8 mile paved walkway from the highway and features timber, fruiting and ornamental trees from the tropics worldwide. An upper section features plants cultivated by the Hawaiians for food and other uses. Keanae Arboretum has no facilities or amenities associated with it and no guided walks or brochures are provided. Trees are identified as to common name, scientific name and country of origin. The focus of the arboretum is to display and identify tropical trees in a natural setting. The climate is warm and humid with frequent showers.
