Abstract: Information is given for 16 Hawaii-grown species, both native and introduced, of present or potential commercial importance. Descriptive notes include tree characteristics, history, size, and growth rates; the timber volume available in Hawaii; and accessibility for logging. Wood properties, including appearance, weight, shrinkage, strength, workability, seasoning, durability, and finishing, are explained with reference to well-known woods, and present and potential uses are described. An appendix includes technical data. Each species is illustrated in color.
