ROD is a fungal disease rapidly killing forests of ʻōhiʻa —the most abundant native tree in the Hawaiian Islands. Initially reported by landowners in Puna in 2010, ROD spread quickly across tens of thousands of acres on Hawaii Island. To date, hundreds of thousands of ʻōhiʻa have died from this fungal disease on Hawaii Island alone. ROD has been confirmed on Kauai, Maui and Oahu.
