Kaloko Makai Dryland Forest Preserve

HFIA provided forest restoration services at the Kaloko Makai Dryland Forest Preserve. The 154-acre dryland preserve was set aside to offset the impacts of constructing Ane Keohokalole Highway, which intersects with Hina Lani Street in North Kona.  HFIA entered into a four-year contract with Nan Inc., the company contracted to build the highway.  Others involved were the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), Hawai‘i County Department of Public Works, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and landowners Stanford Carr Developments and Lanihau Properties.  The contract ended in 2015.
