Octupous tree is highly invasive, and is a major threat to Hawai'i's forests. Conservation agencies target it for control in native forest areas. It grows really well on cliffs; it covers the windward cliffs on the Kaneohe side of the H3.

Invasive species: A non-native species whose introduction causes or is likely to cause economic or environmental harm, or harm to human health.
