Hakalau National Wildlife Refuge IV

Year Planted: 1995

Trees Planted: 19,700
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. 19,700 trees were planted in 1995, the fourth year of the project.
