DescriptionGrowth and volume data for trees on 25 plots reprsenting 11 introduced species in Hawaii were recorded during a 21-year period. Tree were measured at about 5-year intervals to determine overall growth and stand development. The sites selected were considered better-than-average in terms of elevation, amount of precipitation, and soil quality. Except for redwood, stands were unmanaged. The data reported suggest that 10 tree species can grow fast enough to warrant more extensive plantings for timber or wood fiber production.
