DescriptionTree species capable of thriving on soils in high rainfall areas are needed in Hawaii for reforestation. The soils are highly leached and infertile.Two native and 12 introduced tree species were planted at two sites to determine adaptability. Survival, growth, vigor, and form were appraised 1 to 7 years after planting. Performance varied-both within and between species. No one species was outstanding, but several showed qualities that could be used to develop productive forests of mixed species.
