Q.Growing Koa Trees In A Natural Setting Outside Of Hawaii
I am interested in growing KOA outside the state of Hawaii. I have selected a few locations in Mexico and in Nicaragua. Do you have anyone in your organization you can refer me to? I will obtain the seeds from Maui and the Ancient Northern forests of the big island. I will want to grow them to harvest for wood to make building finishes and furniture. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
