Please join this FREE webinar to learn about Hawaiian culture in relation to arboriculture and food
Date: Tuesday, November 11, 2020 from 5-6 pm
Eligible for 1 Arborist (ISA) and LICT Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
Abstract: Although much of the emphasis of Hawaiian agriculture focuses on herbs and shrubs, arboriculture played a
substantial roles in Hawaiian production systems, as they did throughout Polynesia. The use of trees in agriculture varied,
and this presentation will explore the general ecology, structure, and form of traditional arboriculture systems as it relates to
food resilience of the Hawaiian archipelago. We discuss the historical and contemporary roles of arboriculture in Hawai’i’s
food systems, as well as emerging organizations and opportunities for the application of trees for food resilience and security.

Dr. Lincoln is an Associate Researcher at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa, where he runs the highly interdisciplinary
Indigenous Cropping Systems laboratory. He has, and continues to, research a broad spectrum of areas, including forest
ecology and management, restoration ecology, archaeology, personal values and sense of place, ecosystem services, and
terrestrial biogeochemistry within both natural and human dominated systems (i.e. agriculture). His primary focus, however,
is on indigenous cropping systems and their interaction with human societies in both the past and the present.
