Nice spotting of plant growing in a lovely place !.
Here's some interesting information about the wood from this plant/tree:
Native Hawaiians on the northwest coast of the island of Kauaʻi used lightweight pāpala branches in the art of ʻōahi. Branches were ignited and tossed off of high sea cliffs, where they were buoyed by ridge lifts and burned like fireworks.[8] Source: Wikipedia
