Several areas appear to have been disturbed previously be dragging, and several bulldozer cuts and a jeep road are apparent. Vegetation consists of kiawe as the dominant flora, with ilima sida fallax and koa-haole leucaena glauca nearer the coast. A few stands of klu acacia farnesiana were encountered. The entire area is covered by a dry grass. Fauna consists of pheasants, wild pigs, goats, and feral cats. No archaeological surface remains or artifacts, either prehistoric or historic, were found within the project boundaries.
