Rapid ohia death appears to be a relatively new fungus disease in Hawaii and is killing trees all over the Islands. But with heavy rains and unusually warm weather in West Hawaii, we are seeing a new disease attacking our ohia. This fungus attacks the leaves and causes premature leaf drop. It is similar to the disease that killed most Rose Apple trees in East Hawaii. This is a close relative of the ohia and guava. If the weather continues to warm, it is likely we will see more diseases in the normally cool areas of the islands. For example in Kaloko Mauka, we are seeing fungus diseases attacking palms like the Howea forsteriana that did quite well until the recent warming trend.
