    Australian provenances of Eucalyptus grandis and E. saligna were compared at four locations on the island of Hawaii to seek seed sources better than those in current use which were introduced earlier from unrecorded locations in Australia. A broad range of latitude and elevation was represented among the provenances. At all four locations, most E. grandis provenances outgrew most E. saligna. Considerable consistency was demonstrated among the good and poor provenances at each site. Although most differences between provenances were not statistically significant at the 5 percent level, the consistently good performance of several E. grandis provenances led to the recommendation that these seed sources be collected in Australia for future planting on similar sites on the island.
