This high island is similar to Hawaii being that it is a high mountain, but it is different in that there are trees that grow from the mountain peaks all the way to the ocean, and there are trees that grow in the ocean. There are three kinds of trees growing in the ocean. I brought from Ponape 200 mangrove plants. But they all died. If we really want to bring in that plant, it should be brought in by seed, and planted extensively; thousands in Waikiki, Ewa, Waimea on Kauai, on Maui, Molokai, and Hawaii; this tree reaches from twenty to forty feet high, and is good as lumber for house building and for firewood.
