I have taken HLH's tour twice now - I was so inspired and excited after the first tour, I returned with a few friends. This project is restoring Koa forests to thousands of acres that used to be Koa forests before logging and ranching destroyed them. As an environmentalist, restoring native Hawaiian ecosystems is one of the highest goals I can imagine. These folks are doing it right - innovative funding mechanisms, ground-breaking horticultural techniques that are yielding unprecedented success, and a pono attitude toward all they do. To see new Koa forests rebounding is simply one of the best efforts I have ever seen to help our planet - native birds and plants, carbon storage, responsibly harvested hardwoods, and more. As a state senator, I've had the honor of visiting many exciting and innovative projects statewide, and seen many examples of great work being done. None of my experiences surpasses this project.
I personally chose to invest in the project, and have advised several friends to do so, because I have never seen an investment opportunity as in line with my core values as Hawaiian Legacy Hardwoods. But even if you have no interest in investing, this is an inspiring tour that will give you renewed hope for our planet and Hawaii's environment, and educate you on many issues facing Hawaii. Just knowing these talented, friendly, smart folks have dedicated their energies to such a project gives me great hope. Thank you to all at HLH, and keep up the great work!
