Can you tell me where I can obtain ōhiʻa wood please.

Well, if you’re in the Islands you can get them from a lot of different places.  Personally I’m not a fan of cutting down trees just to get wood, unless you’re doing a seriously large project.  I usually get it from scrap or firewood that friends have gotten when clearing land to build houses (always get permission first).  Some people sell firewood or scrap that might work, but you should be careful since moving untreated wood is a great way for pests and diseases (like ʻōhiʻa rust) to get around.  I’m not sure where you get it if you’re on the mainland, though…

Sorry for the long-winded answer, but I hope it helps!
