This banyan tree is located close to the port in historical Lahaina town, Maui, which was the former capital of Hawaii. It is the oldest banyan tree in Hawaii.

The banyan tree, received as a gift by the Smith family in the 1870s, was planted on April 24, 1873. Its extensive trunk and support root system now covers 0.66 acres (0.27 ha).

It is not only the largest in Hawaii but also in the United States.
