Sarah in the eucalyptus stand at Hosmer's Grove in Haleakalā NP. Ralph Hosmer, a forester, had imported tree species from around the world in hopes that one could support a timber industry on the island. Twenty of the pine, spruce, cedar, and eucalyptus species he planted still survive today. Unfortunately, a few species have spread well beyond his grove, and are now invasive threats to native ecosystems.
