NTBG Statement on Rapid Ohia Death

The news that one of the two fungal pathogens known to cause Rapid Ohia Death or ROD is now confirmed to be on Kauai is a serious concern. Ohia (Metrosideros spp.), the most abundant native tree in the state of Hawaii, is a foundation species that is essential to all of our wet and mesic forest ecosystems. As we learn more about this situation, I encourage the public to get informed about how to protect our forests and prevent the spread of this pathogen.
