DescriptionKoa is Hawaii's finest native timber tree. Unfortunately, it grows best in areas that can be converted into good grazing land, and most of the best koa forests have been cleared to develop pasture. Consequently, not much koa is left. Koa seedlings are also palatable to grazing animals, so that the number of young, vigorous koa trees is small.
