Hben P Low In n long letter to the
Republican, takes Issue wltll Professor
Koebele In nomo of tho entomologist
observations outho forests of Hawaii.
Where the professor noted the destruc
tion of )oung trees and underbrush by
cattle, the ranchman remarks that this
was onl) along the well-TlRtten cattle
trails The professor had, however, seen
for himself ntul duly reported the de
structive blight that has been the chief
ngent In foiest destruction. Mr. Lo.v
wished that Piofcssor Koebele could
have seen the whole foiest "I noticed
some of the tnamanc forest along the
How of 1S,'!i. luiout seven miles frou
where the professor went, covered wltll
blight mid hundreds of trees dead, '
writes Mr. Low. Tho following parr-
Rrnphs are Interesting and Important
"I took the professor to tho top of
the noted hill of Piiiiwaavvna, which I;
fenced off and used as 11 fattening pad
dock It has been In use for the lat
seventeen )onrs. Ask the protecsnr if
he found the forest destroy" 1, or the
grasses and underbrush eaten uovv-i.
Ask him. also, did he notlc hundreds
of )oung immune trc"s n.ircadlug on
tho niniikn base of this hill lie will
no doubt s'iv that ho did not notkc
them In my orchard on this hill are
ti number of .voung ko,t trees, besides
aaw a. ohla, nianiane. knulln, nalo. un
make and several vailetlcs of creep
ers, which I had to cut down to mane
room for my foreign fruit trees, Do-s
this appear denuded uf forest nfter be
ing used Bee vm teen years as a paddock?
"Had I known that part of the pro
fessor'strlp was to report on the condi
tions of the existing forests on this
ranch. I would have taken him through
paddoccks 1, 2 nnd 3, about 1.SO0 actes
In each, nnd could hnve shown to Ills
astonishment, as well ns satisfaction,
the denscness of tho manianc fores
After the shrubs such nil pllo and nlu-n-ahe.t
have been eaten olf by cattle th"
mamnue shoots up nnd proves a veiv
valuable tree for shelter, for It allows
the feed to grow luxuriantly beneat I
it 1 discovered this during my first
)eai's experience here. I overstocked
a small paddock with cattle for the pur-
pose of clearing away tho underbrush,
thereby allowing the rlth feed to grov ,
such as milkweed. Spanish clover, etc.
I Immediately noticed that the mania no
came up In gient numbers, nnd I have
since followed this plan until now It Is
almost Impassable for over a mile in
paddocks 1 and -'. and on the hill cnllel
Hcuahcua, about 1,800 feet elevation,
there Is nothing but lnnmane growing,
while only a few years hack thero was
nothing but a few shrubs such as ulel
Again, Mi. Low sa)s:

ulel, aiilii, pllo and kolen. I Inform. I
the piofcssor that I had ubout II 000
ac res of land fenced off from cattle, an 1
on this piece of property could have
shown him a nnol foiest actually lll
dled with holes. The trees arc being
annihilated, not by cattle, but b) beet
les or bugs, koa tiees are being at
tacked in the same manner, and In
three or four )enrs will bo extinct. Of
courso the blame fur this will fall on
the cattle. Is this right? It was on
this icsenc section that I pointed to
Governor Dole tho affected trees. Heio
he tried to get n few koa seeds but
found the majority of them worm-eaten.
How can one expect n forest to grow
'rum worm-cuten seeds?"
The following remarks are as valu
able as an) thing that has ever appeared
here, cither In scientist's or planter'
committee's report, on tho subject of
'foicstry. In Mr. Low's letter Uioto
. quotations nre followed by a statement
of his own work In planting fruit an 1
I other trees:
"I, lor one, um stiongly In favor of
1,1'seivliig the forests, having in
streams oi live springs, and havo to
lely on the hiav) dews and rains to
water stock, and the dense forest for
'ihnde. Without these two necessities
my ranch could not exist. 1 havo sev
leut)-ive miles of fences, and tho land
is event) divided Into paddocks, there-
( by avoiding uny chance of overstock-
i Ing. thus piotectlng my shailo tr-ts
from di) Ing up. If tho Leglslatuio
would puss a law compelling every la-id
owner to plant it teitaln number it
ticcs for every acre that ho or shu
owns, ami see that this law Is enforced,
1 think that ono of the pnnicpal dllll
eiiltlcs would bo obviated, and by that
means In a few years the forests would
bo all that Is ucc-ded.
"I would suggest tho mamano nbov
all ns the most valuable; It nffoids
great shelter for stock, It makes goon
Jenee posts, nnd the feed grows luxur
iantly beneath It. It grows In ony
weather, on Pnhochoe and tho dryest of
soil. On tho slopes uf Maunakcn, above
Horner and Parker's ranch, a dosoluto
and sandy country, there you will suo
tho mniminc nnd nalo spreading. Thuio
aro a laigo number of wild cattle roam
ing In this vicinity and the trees In this
neighborhood show no signs of destruc
tion; In fact the forest is thriving and
the )oung trees are rapidly spreading, '
