These are the beautiful flowers of 'iliahi, the Hawaiian sandalwood. This specific species is, Santalum freycinetianum, it's one of six endemic Hawaiian species of sandalwood.
These flowers were on an unusually large and very beautiful tree on Aiea ridge trail. It was a very old tree, but it was clearly healthy and covered in new leaves that were tinged a bright orange red color.
In ancient Hawaii Sandalwood was also sometimes called Lāʻau ʻala meaning sweet or fragrant wood. Hawaiians would grind it into powdered to scent their Kapa (cloth made from pounded paper mulberry bark). The leaves could be mixed into a hair-wash to get rid of lice and dandruff. It was even sometimes burned as a way to get rid of the pesky mosquitos that were introduced to Hawaii by Western sailors.
Today, sandalwood trees in Hawaii are a rare sight because they were once nearly harvested into extinction. This was during a time when the Hawaiian monarchy was trading with China and that was one of their big ticket items for a long time. Eventually the monarchs realized the problems this trade was causing, not only for their people, but also for their forests and they protected the Sandalwood.
