The mission of the Hawai‘i Forest Institute is to promote the health and productivity of Hawaii’s forests through forest restoration, educational programs, information dissemination, and support for scientific research.
MAHALO ‘ĀINA MESSAGE
We, the Hawai‘i Forest Institute and our sister organization the Hawai‘i Forest Industry Association give deep appreciation and thanks to our ‘āina. We understand that we are dependent upon the land and its forests; the land is not dependent on us. We are humbled, awed and inspired in the presence of one of the lands’ great expressions — its forests. We mahalo the ‘āina and we invite you to mahalo with us by Giving Back to the Forest.
MAHALO ‘ĀINA VISION
Our vision for MAHALO ‘ĀINA is to help ensure a thriving future for the Hawai‘i Forest Institute’s forest restoration and education programs to benefit the ‘āina and people of Hawai‘i.
He ali‘i ka ‘āina: He kauwa ke kanaka
The land is chief: Man its servant
