The mission of the Hawai’i Forest Institute (HFI) is to promote the health and productivity of Hawaii’s forests through forest restoration, public education, information dissemination, and support for scientific research.
In 2003, the Hawai`i Forest Institute (HFI) was formed by the Hawai`iForest Industry Association (HFIA), which was established in 1989 to promote healthy and productive forests and a sustainable forest industry through forest management, education, planning, information exchange, and advocacy. HFIA is a 501(c) (6) nonprofit organization.
The HFI 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.
