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.

Experience the connection to our land with your loved ones at Gunstock Ranch for your legacy tree planting. Participate in the magic of La‘ie in the beautiful budding milo forest, rebuilding the ecology of Oahu’s North Shore.
The Hawaiian Legacy Reforestation Initiative started a project to reforest more than 500 acres of land at Gunstock Ranch.
The Dedication of ANA’s commitment to Hawaii’s reforestation efforts is a critical first step in connecting our visitors to the importance of conservation. Through exciting opportunities to provide meaningful change, HLRI and Gunstock Ranch Honor All Nippon Airlines for their vision of supporting Hawaii’s preservation.
Planting koa, milo, and ohia has a side benefit.
Lilia Tollefsen, the CEO of Oahu’s Gunstock Ranch, gestures at long rows of tiny trees, their heart-shaped leaves quavering in the island breeze. “Our goal,” she says, “is to make the trees more valuable in the ground than out of it.”
Tollefsen is showing me and a small group of would-be foresters the latest project of the Hawaiian Legacy Reforestation Initiative.
When you think of Oahu, you automatically think of beaches, and for good reason: There are tons of gorgeous ones to be found, from bustling Waikiki to snorkeling haven Hanauma Bay to local surfer spots on the North Shore. But the island also provides visitors plenty of opportunities to find adventure beyond the sun and sand. Here are eight to put on your radar.
