Description: Hakalau Forest NWR was established in 1985 under the authority of the Endangered Species Act to preserve and protect five species of endangered forest birds and their rain forest habitat. While most of the 32,730 acre refuge is closed canopy forest, over one hundred years of cattle grazing, logging and burning have convened about 5,000 acres (2,023 ha) of upper elevation forest into open woodland and pasture dominated by introduced grasses. Other portions of the refuge encompass relatively intact native forest including some of the last montane, mesic koa-'hi'a (Acacia koa-Metrosideros polymorpha) forests in the world. These areas contain some of the highest densities of native forest birds in the State of Hawai'i as well as 29 rare and endangered plant species and the endangered Hawaiian Hoary Bat.

Keywords: bareroot nursery, container nursery, nursery practices, fertilization, pesticides, seeds, reforestation, plant propagation, native plants, tree physiology
