Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: Several tree species are now being planted in Hawaii to reforest areas on which firetree (Myrica faya Ait.)-a plant pest of little commercial value-has been killed. The potential of converting cull trees of five ofthe replacement species into growing stock trees by coppicing was evaluated. Australian toon and tropical ash showed the greatest potential for conversion; hoop-pine and Moreton-Bay-chestnut, intermediate potential; and Queensland-maple, least potential. Stump decay was not a factor with any species. And pruning paint did not affect decay or sprout behavior in any species.

Keywords: Myrica faya, conversion, Toona australis, Fraxinus uhdei, treatment (silviculture), coppice regeneration
