this planting is probably the most famous at the arboretum. Created
by John Y. Naka in 1984.
Trained from nursery stock, the individual trees were first styled as early as 1948. Main tree was first styled in 1954. A grove of seven trees was originally assembled in 1964 and four more trees were added in 1973.
Each tree in this forest planting were intended to represent one of John Naka's grandchildren.
