Aloha and Welcome!
The Hawai‘i Forest Industry Association (HFIA) is dedicated to responsible forest management. It offers an annual woodworking exhibition, sponsors the Hawaii’s Wood trademark, manages native forest ecosystems, and serves as an advocate for Hawaii’s diverse forest industry—from tree planting and harvesting to creating and selling wood products.
Established in 1989, HFIA is a nonprofit corporation founded by people committed to managing and maintaining healthy and productive forests. HFIA’s programs promote healthier forests, increased business in Hawaii’s estimated $30.7 million annual forest industry, and more jobs (currently numbered at more than 1,000) within the sector.
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.

All investments are subject to risk. Knowledgeable and active investors have increasingly chosen forestry and associated natural resource investment opportunities to provide diversity, alternate, contra cyclical and longer term stability to a portfolio.
Investments in forests are inherently long term commitments subject, but not limited to, assorted variables including market fluctuation of timber and timberland prices; unpredictability of production costs; relative illiquidity compared to stocks and other financial assets; environmental hazards such as fire, storms, pest infestation, disease, animal damage, and theft as well as regulatory risk such as legislation related to land use and threatened or endangered species.
While established, world renowned timber species are being grown in Hawai‘i, investments in all Hawaiian timber species do not yet have the experience of a life cycle investment and, as such, have additional unique risks.
