The nonprofit Hawaiian Legacy Reforestation Initiative, together with sustainable forestry company HLH LLC, has reforested more than 400,000 native and endemic Hawaiian trees on the islands of Hawaii and Oahu — nearly a third of the organization’s initial goal since planting its first tree in 2010.
