Please enjoy a new feature of this website – Palm Fact of the Week.
The Merwin Conservancy will share interesting tidbits, facts and information about Palms to honor W. S. Merwin and the world-class palm forest he has planted and cultivated. We hope you find this new project to be informative, inspiring and filled with fun facts about our beloved palm trees. For our first Palm Fact of the Week submission, we focus on the statistics behind the renowned Merwin Palm Collection…
THE MERWIN PALM COLLECTION – A rare Hawaiian palm forest hand planted by W. S. Merwin on 19 acres on the north shore of Maui, Hawaii over the past 37 years.
Over the coming weeks, months and years, we will feature facts and figures about the wide variety of palm trees existing here in the Merwin Palm Forest. Enjoy!
