Description: Metrosideros is a genus of about 50 species. With the exception of one species found in South Africa, all grow in the Pacific from the Philippines, through Papua New Guinea, to New Zealand and on high volcanic islands (Wagner and others 1990). Five species occur in the Hawaiian Islands (Wagner and others 1990). Metrosideros polymorpha is native to Hawaii, where it grows on all the main islands except Niihau and Kahoolawe. It is the most abundant and widespread native tree in Hawaii (Adee and Conrad 1990) and grows in association with numerous species in both wet and relatively dry forests.
