More About Hawaiian Legacy Hardwoods

The Hawaiian Legacy Hardwoods (HLH) Plantation is located 34 miles north of Hilo, above historic Umikoa Village on the slopes of Mauna Kea. The 2,700-acre sustainable forestry project will support the growth of 1.3 million rare tropical hardwood trees, primarily Koa, indigenous only to Hawaii. The planting site was once a magnificent Koa forest and the personal property of King Kamehameha I. This old growth forest was almost lost to clear-cut harvesting and cattle grazing, but Hawaiian Legacy Hardwoods is working to return this site to its former glory.  For more information, visit http://www.hawaiianlegacyhardwoods.com or contact HLH by phone at  (877) 707-TREE (8733) or (808) 595-8847 or via email at info@hawaiianlegacyhardwoods.com.
