Title: Species Trials at the Waiakea Arboretum, Hilo, Hawaii

Author: Richmond, George B.

Date: 1963

Station ID: RP-PSW-004

Description: Survival counts were made of 84 exotic tree species planted during 1956-1960 in a cleared rain-forest area near Hilo, Hawaii. Growth measurements were recorded for 5- and 6-year-old plantings. Most species had good survival, but some failed entirely. Soil depth was found to have a strong influence on rate of growth, but not on survival. Several valuable timber species showed remark-able growth. The report lists possibilities for future uses and contains recommendations for development of the arboretum.
