Abstract: In the late 1970s red mangrove, Rhizophora mangle, an invasive alien climax tree, invaded the Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park saltwater marshes and formed dense closed forest stands. The mangrove impaired nationally significant archeological sites, not only visually but also the physical structures necessitating its removal. The need to protect the physical integrity of the structures complicated any work to control the trees. Beginning in 1988 park maintenance crews carefully began hand-removing the mangrove and systematically controlling reinvading seedling sprouts. By the mid-1990s all mangrove stands on park-owned lands had been removed. Controlling reinvading mangrove sprouts remains a never-ending maintenance endeavor.
