“Weʻre disappointed to find C. lukuohia in nine ‘ōhi‘a in these areas,” said Sheri S. Mann, Kauaʻi District Manager for DLNR Division of Forestry and Wildlife (DOFAW). “But after extensive research into this new threat attacking ‘ōhi‘a, we also know the fungal pathogens can move in the wind, by animals, and possibly by water too. So, unfortunately new detections arenʻt as surprising as they are disappointing.” DETAILS: #MauiNow #rapidohiadeath #rod Courtesy Hawai'i DLNR.
