WOODY WEEDS MEASUREMENTS
Woody weed species ≥1 cm DBH within each plot are identified, mapped, and measured. Woody weeds are measured within size catagories (1-2 cm, 2-3 cm, 3-4 cm, 4-5 cm) up to 5 cm DBH. Woody weeds >5 cm are measured to the nearest millimeter. Woody weeds to measured at Palamanui: Leucaena leucocephala, Grevillea robusta, and Schinus terebinthifolius. Woody weeds at Laupahoehoe: Fraxinus uhdei, Psidium cattleianum, and Rubus ellipticus.
After cover estimates and woody weed measurements are complete, invasive weeds will be removed using hand pulling and/or herbicide as appropriate. We record the presence of any new weeds within plots, along trails, and near plot boundaries.
