Title: Direct seeding of lemon-gum eucalyptus, redwood, and brushbox in Hawaii

Author: Waiters, Gerald A.

Date: 1970

Source: Res. Note PSW-RN-211. Berkeley, CA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Forest and Range Experiment Station. 4 p

Station ID: RN-PSW-212

Description: Direct seeding has economic and silvicultural advantages over planted seedlings. To see if three selected timber species could be direct-seeded, trials were held at Kulani Camp, island of Hawaii. After 1 year, lemon-gum eucalyptus had fair stocking and height growth, but redwood and brushbox had not progressed satisfactorily. Mulch had no real effect on either stocking or height growth of any species.
