The Hawai‘i Forest Industry Association (HFIA), which was established in 1989, formed the Hawai‘i Forest Institute (HFI) as a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization in 2003.
The mission of the Hawai‘i Forest Institute (HFI) is to promote the health and productivity of Hawaii’s forests through forest restoration, educational programs, information dissemination, and support for scientific research.
The HFI Board is made up of 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.
