The Kaulunani Council is working as part of the Hawai`i Forestry team on a State-Wide Assessment and Resource Strategy (SWARS), which is an analysis of forest-related conditions, trends, threats, and opportunities within the State, and assures that federal, state, private and community resources focus on important issues.
The Council has identified urban forestry priority issues and is seeking input from the urban forestry community through a short survey. The results will be used to develop strategies for the Urban Forestry Summit November 4-5, 2009 at the East-West Center in Honolulu. Click to take the survey.
