The Hawai‘i Forest Institute (HFI) is dedicated to the success of a number of ongoing projects that bring the organization’s mandate to the public in a tangible and worthwhile way.
The Hawai‘i Forest Journal is the Institute’s baseline for providing well-researched information on all aspects of forests and forestry in Hawai‘i. Statewide Forestry Forums provided sessions on O‘ahu, Maui, Kaua‘i, and Hawai‘i Island for the general public about ecosystem services that Hawaii’s forests provide.
Through support of ongoing restoration and outreach efforts at Ka‘ūpūlehu Dryland Forest, Kalaemanō Cultural Center, and La‘i‘ōpua Dryland Habitat Preserve, students and other community members and visitors learn more about the connections of mauka and makai environments and the need for stewardship of Hawaii’s endangered dryland ecosystems.
HFI is working with HFIA and community partners to create the Pana‘ewa Zoo Discovery Forest in Hilo, Hawai‘i and plans are underway for the Honolulu Zoo Discovery Forest, both native and agro forest demonstration projects.
The Board, staff and volunteers of HFI continue to work on these exciting projects throughout the year.
We also connect to–and stay informed about the many projects throughout Hawai‘i that are improving our forest environments. Join us as we explore these exciting statewide projects.
