The dibble-tube system was developed to meet the constraints of Hawaii's diverse species and planting sites, restrictive planting weather, generally inexperienced tree planters, and high costs. This system, which is based on the Hawaii dibble tube and rack, includes the nursery transport, and field phases of forestation with container-grown stock. It is more reliable and less costly than the bare-root system in Hawaii.
