Hawaii Invasive Species Awareness Week -- Mar 3-9, 2014
Hawaii Invasive Species Council.
The State of Hawaii is hosting the 2nd annual Hawaii Invasive Species Awareness Week (HISAW) in March 2014. HISAW seeks to promote information sharing and public engagement in what the Hawaii State Legislature has declared "the single greatest threat to Hawaii's economy and natural environment and to the health and lifestyle of Hawaii’s people."

Destructive Beetles Found on Oahu Coconut Trees (Jan 9, 2014)
State of Hawai'i Department of Agriculture.

New Pest Advisory: West Indian Woodnettle (PDF | 125 KB) (Aug 2012)
State of Hawai'i Department of Agriculture.
Laportea aestuans, the West Indian woodnettle or stinging nettle, is a new introduction to Hawai'i. This plant should be controlled because of its potential to cause skin irritations, and its invasive characteristics. In April 2012, the Hawai'i Department of Agriculture found the West Indian woodnettle growing at several O'ahu nurseries. Please notify the Plant Pest Control Branch at 973-9538 if you see this weed.

Native Plant Restoration Not Enough to Maintain Tropical Dry Forests in Hawaii (Jun 29, 2012)
USDA. Forest Service.
Protecting Hawaiian dry forests from invasive species and the risk of wildfire is an on-going challenge for land managers and scientists conducting research on the Island of Hawaii. It is commonly thought that removing the invasive species and planting native species will restore the land to its original state. However, in a recent paper published in Biological Invasions, it was found that it is not quite that simple.

Interisland Coffee Transport Rules In Effect: Rules Established to Prevent Spread of Coffee Pest (Feb 24, 2012)
State of Hawai'i Department of Agriculture.
The Hawai'i Department of Agriculture has established permanent rules that require permits, treatments and inspections in order to transport unroasted coffee beans and other coffee-related materials from Hawai'i Island to other islands to prevent the spread of the coffee berry borer (CBB). The rules are effective February 24, 2012 and are similar to interim rules that were placed in effect in December 2010. (View the full Administrative Rule (PDF | 159 KB))

2012-2022 Statewide Noxious Invasive Pest Program (SNIPP) Strategic Plan (Nov 2011; PDF | 814 KB)
Hawai'i Department of Transportation. Highways Division.
This Strategic Plan describes Highway Division's Statewide Noxious Invasive Pest Program (SNIPP). In July 2009, Hawai'i Department of Transportation (HDOT) worked with federal, state, county and nongovernment stakeholders to formulate the program's objectives and tasks to address the problem of invasive species. Implementation of the plan will provide the Department with the means to mitigate the introduction, spread and impact of invasive species along Hawai'i State roads.
