Puna is just one of the areas on the Big Island that felt the wrath of Tropical storm Iselle.
The Edmund C. Olson Trust owns agriculture land through the state, but says its macadamia and coffee farms felt the hit.
Norfolk pine trees twisted by the winds are just some of the Ka'u casualties from Tropical Storm Iselle. Macadamia nut trees were also pulled out of the ground, some split in half.
John Cross, Edmund C. Olson trust land manager, says the rain loosened the soil before the wind roared in to increase the damage.
"A lot of this wind came down from Mauna Loa through Wood Valley area and laid down quite a bit of these young trees. That's pretty hard on us. We're out there trying to stand up some and remove the ones that have just been completely destroyed," said Cross.
Cross says they are estimating Iselle caused about a $500,000 in losses to their macadamia crop.
"We lost quite a bit of trees. We lost over 2,000 macadamia trees. They're all fairly young, about 8 to 9 years of age. That's a very bad time of life to have a wind storm come through because the trees have a big, large canopy on them, but they don't have a fully matured root system," said Cross.
The trust also suffered damage to its coffee plants. The rain and wind destroyed about 1,500 coffee plants, including 200 to 300 that were fully matured and bearing fruit.
Cross says there was also a flash flood over Wood Valley Road that took out some of that road pavement.
