Hakalau National Wildlife Refuge II

Year Planted: 1993

Trees Planted: 38,650
Location: Hawaii

Re-establishing native hardwoods (Acacia koa) to provide habitat for native Hawaiian birds is the main purpose of the Hakalau Forest National Wildlife Refuge reforestation project on the big island of Hawaii. Koa helps create an overstory so native plants can recapture the site from non-native vegetative competition. Seed collection, nursery production and difficulties created by El Nino weather suggested a 5-year time frame. 38,650 trees were planted in 1993, the second year of the project.
