THE OHIA FOREST OF KOHALA
“Thousands of dollars worth of ohia trees in the district of Kohala, Hawaii, will be destroyed in five years if there is nothing done to save that forest,” reported Representative Uluihi on Monday, one of the members of the committee of the house of representatives who went with some of the members of his committee to Kohala to see the state of the forests of Kohala.
The question pertaining to those forest lands of Kohala going to the Territory by being purchased by the legislature is what brought on this question. In the next session of the legislature in the coming February, the committee on forestry will present its report. The members of this committee are G. P. Wilder, M. G. Paschoal and Jesse Uluihi. On Wednesday last week, they went to Kohala and on Saturday they will return.
