Codes of conduct for using Hawaii-Pacific Weed Risk Assessments
Weed risk assessments should not be used as primary
justification for removing or unconditionally excluding trees or other plants
from urban landscapes.[Explanation]
Although the "H" designation is an indication of risks in some environments, it should not be interpreted to mean "do not plant under any circumstances".[Explanation]
I understand that the Hawaii-Pacific weed risk assessments are based on the best available published information; if additional information becomes available, assessments will be updated and risk ratings can change.
