Hawai’i Forest Industry Association/Hawai’i Forest Institute

Established in 1989, the Hawai‘i Forest Industry Association (HFIA) is a nonprofit corporation founded by people committed to sustainable forest management. The mission of the HFIA is to promote healthy and productive forests and a sustainable forest industry through forest management, education, planning, information exchange, and advocacy.

HFIA offers an annual woodworking exhibition, sponsors the Hawaii’s Wood trademark, manages forest ecosystems, and serves as an advocate for Hawaii’s diverse forest industry—from tree planting and harvesting to creating and selling wood products. HFIA’s programs promote healthier forests, increased business in Hawaii’s forest industry, and more jobs within the sector.

The Hawai`i Forest Institute was incorporated as a nonprofit organization in 2003 by the Hawai`i Forest Industry Association. 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.
