In 2012 a series of wildfires burned across state lands, including Forest Reserves and Natural Area Reserves on Kaua‘i. These fires scorched more than 3,000 acres of land and represent one of the most significant wildfire events on Kaua‘i since the 1960s. Subsequently Governor Neil Abercrombie issued an emergency proclamation directing the Department of Land and Natural Resources, Division of Forestry and Wildlife (DLNR/DOFAW) to develop a forest restoration project to mitigate post-fire damage. DOFAW is planning for log removal and replanting in the burn areas. HFI is assisting DOFAW develop public information signage and conduct efforts to reforest the Kōkeʻe Area.
