Rapid Ohia Death

A horrible disease is threatening Hawaii Island’s 800,000 acres of ohia forests, which make up the bulk of our watershed and provide habitat for birds and other native species.  Ohia is the first tree that grows in lava.  J. B. Friday of University of Hawaii, Flint Hughes of the U.S. Forest Service, and Lisa Keith of Pacific Basin Agriculture Research Center in Hilo talk about Rapid Ohia Death.
