Ethan Romanchak and Jonathan Keyser started Native Nursery with a commitment to growing plants native to Maui for the purposes of statewide reforestation and landscaping. Haleakala Ranch, one of Paniolo’s key collaborators, has been working with Native Nursery to source and propagate robust lines of koa, with the long-term vision of reforesting large tracts of land with koa, and outcompeting invasive species such as gorse.
