Not illustrated. 1911 edition. Excerpt: ...The Board of Commissioners of Agriculture and Forestry, Honolulu, T. H. Gentlemen: --I have the honor to recommend the creation of a forest reserve in the District of Puna, Island and County of Hawaii, to be known as the Puna Forest Reserve, covering a tract of 19,850 acres of government land. The area in question is the tract of government land known generally as Kaohe, lying mauka of the homesteads near Pahoa, on a portion of which the Hawaiian Development Company is now conducting logging operations under a license from the Territorial Government, granted in January, 1910. It will be recalled that in the autumn of 1909 the question was before the Board of setting apart this area as a forest reserve. But because certain of the area proposed to be set apart was regarded as potentially agricultural land, which, after it had been cut over was to be subject to homesteading, the Governor thought it inadvisable to set the land apart as a forest reserve at that time. During the past year the area supposed to be most fit for agriculture, that is, the section nearest the existing Kaohe Homesteads above Pahoa, has been logged. As the land further mauka is not deemed as suitable for agricultural use, the Governor is now willing to waive his objections and to set apart the portion of the tract that still remains uncut, as a forest reserve. To this end a new description has been prepared by the Survey Office, eliminating the area of prospective agricultural land. The area originally proposed to be reserved was 23,850 acres; the area now recommended is 19,850 acres. The proposed Puna Forest consists of a but little explored tract covered by a more or less heavy stand of Ohia Lehua forest, interspersed with open lava fields, and areas of scrub growth.
