Hawaii's Tropical Trees Dorothy Hargreaves
Hawaii's Tropical Trees. Dorothy and Bob Hargreaves, Island Heritage, 1964.
Trees from all over the world thrive in Hawaii's generous sunlight, moist breezes, and fast-draining volcanic soil. This beginner's guide shows the common trees—both wild and cultivated, sources of flower, fruit, and shade—that you find in the islands today. Organized by accepted botanical relationship (family, genus, and species), this guide provides interesting nuggets of natural history as well as beautiful images by one of Hawaii's most distinguished photographers.
