Forestry applications in tropical Pacific Island settings represent a unique blend of “classic” forest management principals with island traditions and needs. Fundamental benefits such as watershed function, erosion control and invasive species control are addressed through objectives including native ecosystem restoration, wildlife enhancement, agroforestry and commercial plantations. Though projects can span hundreds of acres, many of our Cooperators address forestry needs on sites less than five acres in size. Join us for a look at some of our forestry/agroforestry management efforts!
