The mission of the Hawai`i Forest Institute is to promote the health and productivity of Hawaii’s forests through forest restoration, educational programs, information dissemination, and support for scientific research.
The Board comprises individuals who provide knowledgeable and respected contributions in education, industry, science, law, environmental and cultural conservation, organizational governance and academic research. The strength of the Institute lies in the Board’s ability to take thoughtful and measured steps to match goals with organizational mandate. Please contact us for more information.
