The VISION of the Hawaiian Legacy Reforestation Initiative ("HLRI") is to develop and implement innovative forest restoration models that will not only return the endemic forests to the landscape of Hawai‘i, but will allow these forests to be financially self-supporting both now and into the future.


The MISSION of the Hawaiian Legacy Reforestation Initiative is to develop scientific, economic and ecologically sustainable models and practices that would:

* Restore and improve the Hawaiian forest to what it once was.

* Allow landowners to profitably establish and maintain permanent forest on these lands.

* Protect and promote our native flora and fauna.

* Maximize the ability to sequester carbon from our atmosphere.

* Educate and entrain all who live and visit our islands the importance of caring for all our forest in all their forms.

* Recharge our watersheds with more water.

* Allow individuals and businesses an opportunity to become stakeholders of our environment through the planting of trees.
