An Overview of Hawaii’s Cultivated Trees and How to Identify Them with Matt Ritter, Jenn Yost, and Kevin Eckert (not an AAA event)

Join the speakers for an evening lecture and in-person tour that will discuss methods and new tools to
identify and manage Hawai’i’s cultivated trees. Hawai’i is home to a diversity of trees unlike
anywhere else, and the issues surrounding trees are unique. The most common
native, ornamental, and weedy trees will be outlined and the speakers will introduce new tools to help participants identify different species and find the right tree for the right place. This presentation will be an evening lecture via Zoom followed by an in-person tree walk on the UH Manoa campus three days later.
